Hey Pats Nation!
As a New England Patriots Cheerleader, I am always looking forward to seeing which charitable organization we will be teaming up with next. I’ve always enjoyed lending a hand and making someone’s day. Working with charitable organizations like Cradles to Crayons and Best Buddies, I’ve not only been able to share compassion and meet so many wonderful people but acquire skills and experience for my career path as well.
As an aspiring Communications professional with a Bachelor’s degree, I’ve chosen to continue my education by pursuing a Master’s degree as well. Continuing my education not only meant more studying at the library, but more studying within our community – and hundreds of communities throughout New England! Being able to work with various charitable organizations has given me a “best of both worlds” experience. I’m able to better myself career wise, but also share so many special moments with adults and children – animals, too – throughout the 6 beautiful states in New England.
One of my favorite moments at a charitable event was right around Christmas time, here, at Gillette Stadium. Each year, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation holds the Gifts from the Gridiron Event. During this experience, I had the opportunity to take a child in need through a clothing store and help her pick out the clothes that she’d like to have. We went through the entire store, picking out pink hats and purple gloves. Watching her eyes light up as she picked out her new winter jacket was such a heartwarming moment for me. As the shop concluded, she ran up to me and gave me a big hug and said, “Thank you for helping me find clothes for Christmas”. I will never forget that moment.
Throughout this experience, I’ve strengthened my skills in areas such as public relations, marketing and social work. I continue to look forward to bettering my career by traveling and working with different companies and organizations. It’s even more exciting to know that there are many more rewarding experiences ahead, as I continue my journey working with charitable organizations as a Communications professional. Cheers to all of the incredible charitable organizations throughout New England! Aly
