ATLANTA (BP) -- About 150 volunteers from First Baptist Church in Atlanta packed 500 gift baskets on Jan. 30 that will be delivered to local children's hospitals as part of the Super Baskets of Hope initiative.
The project, sponsored by Basket of Hope, a charity based in St. Louis, Mo., enlists the help of current and former NFL players who deliver the gift baskets to children and their families. In Atlanta, the baskets are going to children at Egleston and Scottish Rite hospitals.
"We like Basket of Hope's philosophy, and we like what they were doing," said Mary Gellerstedt, director of global missions at Atlanta First Baptist Church. "Our folks enjoy doing something like this that's going to help somebody else." Read More
