Super Baskets of Hope Packing Event

The packing event will take place at First Baptist Church Atlanta -- SOLD OUT (all volunteer positions have been filled!)

These gifts will be delivered to over 600 seriously ill children in Atlanta and beyond by NFL players, local heroes, and caring volunteers!  We are asking volunteers to help sponsor the baskets to be delivered in the Atlanta 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 Atlanta area, please contact Angela Brunette at abrunette@basketofhope.org.  

More than 900 volunteers packaged 7,000 Super Baskets of Hope on January 30 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The baskets were shipped to sick kids in all 32 NFL markets, including Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis.
