St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children is pleased to welcome The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation (TMJF) to its hospital as they deliver more than 140 age appropriate gift baskets and hope totes to seriously ill children and their parents or guardians on Thursday, April 30, 2015, at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, PA.
“Basket of Hope is thrilled to have Malcolm Jenkins and his foundation personally deliver these generous gifts to the children in St. Christopher’s. The families will truly enjoy meeting Malcolm and lifelong memories will be made.” says Angela Brunette, Founder and National Executive Director, Basket of Hope.
Basket of Hope worked with sponsors and donors, including The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation, to secure over $1,000,000 worth of items that were packed in more than 4,000 baskets and totes, by more than 700 volunteers in Glendale, AZ during this year’s Super Bowl Week. The baskets and totes were shipped compliments of FedEx to more than 20 hospitals in NFL team cities nationwide. NFL players, coaches, and other local volunteers personally delivered them to children and their parents/guardians.
The gift baskets are age appropriate filled with toys, games, crafts, stuffed animals and other items. The Hope Totes, which are optional for the adults, contain gifts to nourish them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually including inspirational materials, music, jewelry, snacks, coffee, teas, mugs, and more.
