Givens Warms Hearts with Baskets of Hope

Posted Oct 25, 2014

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Chris Givens joined Basket of Hope for a visit to SSM Cardinal Glennon Children Medical Center.

St. Louis knows Rams wide receiver Chris Givens for his speed and his big play ability. Basket of Hope knows him as a person, who not only has talent on the field, but generosity in his heart.

Givens recently joined Basket of Hope for a visit to SSM Cardinal Glennon Children Medical Center’s Bob Costas Cancer Center. During his visit, he was able to surprise some children in their rooms, bringing them “baskets of hope.” Before his stay was over, he polished his Play-Doh skills while sharing the company of a young patient.

Basket of Hope’s mission is to bring hope and joy to children, and their families, who have been recently diagnosed with cancer or other serious illnesses. Children receive baskets filled with books, toys, games, crafts, movies and more.

Givens joins a list of Rams players who participate with Basket of Hope, visiting young patients in the St. Louis area. To learn more about the organization, visit www.basketofhope.org.
