Fundex Games helps with Super Baskets of Hope

PLAINFIELD —  

Riley Children’s Foundation, Basket of Hope, and former Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy have kicked off the first-ever Super Bowl host city service project that reaches across the nation.

The Super Baskets of Hope project is made possible by the generosity of Indiana companies, including Fundex Games in Plainfield.

Super Baskets of Hope will deliver 7,000 gift-filled baskets to critically ill children in each of America’s 32 NFL cities — including Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health — and cities throughout Indiana. More than 500 volunteers will gather Jan. 30 in Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis to fill baskets with items meant to provide entertainment and inspiration to hospitalized children. NFL players, coaches, alumni, and other volunteers will deliver the baskets to children in hospitals.

Fundex Games has provided more than $175,000 in games for the project. The Super Baskets of Hope will each be equipped with five games.

The baskets also contain caps from Lids for every child’s home team; Notre Dame footballs; Colts water bottles; Indiana Pacers/Indiana Fever basketballs; Vera Bradley journals; software from Musical DNA; Pillow Pets provided by KLOVE radio, in honor of the late Riley patient Jacob McConahay; and Tony and Lauren Dungy’s latest children’s book.

Tote bags with spiritually uplifting and comforting books and CDs will also be given to families. A major donation from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans funded those items and U Design Jewelry donated unique “hope” necklaces for every tote.
