Bears receiver Johnny Knox, through his charitable organization Opportunity Knox, wants to spread the joy of Christmas to children in Englewood, one of Chicago's most challenged neighborhoods.
Knox is teaming up with Joyce Meyer Ministries and Maranatha Church to visit with children and their families Saturday afternoon.
There will be prize giveaways and music, as well as hot drinks and appetizers.
A Gospel choir will also sign Christmas carols.
Knox is expected to be joined by other Bears players, including guard Lance Louis.
Families in attendance will receive non-perishable food care packs, grocery or restaurant and retail gift cards, toys and electronics.
"I'm excited to partner with such a great organization like Hand of Hope," Knox said in a statement. "We want to bless as many children in the Englewood community as possible."
Joyce Meyer Ministries is an international nonprofit organization that provides global humanitarian assistance.
