If you're looking to give back to our community, you could support the below events that the Patriots wives/significant others and the organization has coming up!
- Cradles to Crayons that continues through most of the season. New or lightly used coats and winter gear can be placed in donation boxes located at the stadium. You can help our efforts by starting a coat drive at your child’s school or your workplace, bringing winter gear to the games, or volunteering at the Cradles to Crayons warehouse.
- October 11th- Day of Pampering For Women This is a very special event for women affected by breast cancer. The day of pampering usually begins with a beautiful breakfast with the Patriots Womens’ Organization and the survivors at Gillette. The survivors are treated to all sorts of fun activities, including yoga, makeovers, massages, and often a chance to mingle with some of the players on the field.
- November 20th- Thanksgiving In A Basket Event as the name suggests, this event provides thanksgiving in a basket to many Bostonians in need. Each recipient receives a basket full of Thanksgiving treats – from the turkey to the stuffing. Everything that you need for a perfect Thanksgiving spread. The Baskets are carried out to the recipient’s cars by Patriots players and their wives, providing a unique opportunity to connect with players on a more personal level.
- December – Gifts From The GridIron- The Bass Pro Shop event. At this event, hundreds of children and teens in need come to Bass Pro Shop in Foxboro for an all-out shopping spree. Each child is assigned a player or a wife who will help them select winter basics as well as Christmas gifts for their family members. The kids always leave with a huge smile on their faces which is why this event is so special.
