CORAL SPRINGS, FL – You may see some NFL players from Super Bowl LIV around town on Tuesday, as they prepare baskets and totes with Broward Health employees and Coral Springs police for ill children and their parents treated at local hospitals, including Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital at Broward Health Coral Springs.
The football players, as well as alumni, will join Coral Springs Police Department and cheerleaders from Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in this year’s Super Baskets of Hope event, in which “hope” totes and baskets will be assembled for hundreds of babies, children and teenagers and their families through the nonprofit Basket of Hope.
The Parkland Golf and Country will host the volunteer packers from 9-2 pm Tuesday. After that, the baskets will be taken to four hospitals.
Basket of Hope is a nonprofit that has been helping seriously ill children for 24 years. The group joined forces with the NFL in 1999, and during the Indianapolis Super Bowl started the Super Baskets of Hope event to deliver baskets and totes to children in the Super Bowl city and to participating hospitals across the nation, according to Coral Springs Police Department.
