Through the Celebrate Volunteerism initiative, the New England Patriots Foundation, in partnership with WBZ and Project 351, is hosting their annual toy drive to benefit children in need during the holiday season.

Starting on Thursday, Nov. 24 and running through Sunday, Dec. 17, fans can bring new and unwrapped toys to the blue and white collection bins throughout Patriot Place. Locations will include:

  • Entrance to Showcase Cinemas
  • Patriot Place Management Office and Hallway
  • Bass Pro Shops
  • Entrance to the Patriots Pro Shop

Toy donations must be new and unwrapped. Toys will serve children ranging from newborn to 18 years old.


Throughout December, high school Alumni of Project 351 will lead over 80 local toy drives in support of a statewide community of partners and the Patriots Foundation.

Patriots fans and WBZ-TV viewers are invited to bring a toy to different "stuff-a-truck" on events on 12/10 & 12/17. Toys can be dropped off on the 10th from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM at the Dean College Stage. On the 17th toys will be collected in Lot 22 from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM.
