V-103’s Frank Ski joins Russell CARES volunteers to kick off Mother’s Day weekend by helping patients make love-themed activities for their mothers while also receiving some gifts and goodies of their own
Just before Mother’s Day, Russell CARES, the new, formalized community engagement arm of
H.J. Russell & Company, will have employee volunteers show a lot of love for Hughes Spalding
patients and their mothers by doing various love-themed activities with them in the lobby of the
downtown hospital. Together, the volunteers and patients will do arts and crafts, play games, dine
on Chick-fil-A courtesy of Vine City Chick-fil-A, color and win prizes while also getting to meet V-
103’s Frank Ski. As a parting gift, in addition to their love-inspired crafts, more than 75 patient
families will receive a set of interactive Playtime Bed Sheets with games and learning tools printed
directly on them that have been donated by Russell, and mothers will receive a flower.
The children who are being treated on the hospital’s in-patient floor that day will receive their very own goodie bag and set of sheets delivered directly to their rooms by Michael Russell, CEO, H.J. Russell & Company, Frank Ski, and other Russell CARES volunteers.
Russell’s history with Hughes Spalding runs deep. Born at Hughes Spalding were two of the three children (H. Jerome and Michael) of the late Atlanta business leader, philanthropist and construction icon, Herman J. Russell (1930-2014) and his wife, the late Otelia Hackney Russell (1930-2006). In 2010, the Hughes Spalding lobby was named after Mrs. Russell, and in 2016, the Emergency Room was named after Lovette Twyman Russell, the wife of Russell CEO Michael Russell. She was also born at Hughes Spalding and currently serves as the chair of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Hughes Spalding Community Foundation Board.
