In an effort to honor the late Myra Kraft and spread values of community service and charitable donation, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation established a season-long enterprise, "Celebrate Volunteerism."
"Volunteerism is at the heart of giving back and making a difference," said Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft in a release. "My wife made an immeasurable impact through volunteering, and through this campaign I hope others are inspired to do the same."
