2017 Super Baskets of Hope Packing Event

Join us at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, TX on Tuesday, January 31st to help us pack hundreds of Super Baskets of Hope and Hope Totes! 

These gifts will be delivered to seriously ill children in Houston and beyond by NFL players, local heroes, and caring volunteers!  We are asking volunteers to help sponsor the baskets to be delivered in the Houston area by making a donation of $30 or more.  The baskets are filled with age appropriate: toys, educational materials, games, craft items, music, stuffed animals, and more. Their parents are offered a Vera Bradley Tote Bag filled with items to nourish them physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. These family gifts are valued at over $300 each.  If your business, church, or other service organization is interested in being a sponsor to provide more baskets to kids in the Houston area, please contact Angela Brunette at abrunette@basketofhope.org.  

Lunch will be provided. Children ages 12 and up are welcome and must be accompanied by an adult.
