Deadline Approaching for 2008 Community MVP Awards


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The deadline to submit applications for the 2008 Community MVP Awards program is Monday, March 31, 2008. The Community MVP Awards honor individuals who exemplify leadership, dedication and a commitment to improving the communities in which they live through volunteerism.

Twenty-one winners will be chosen and grants ranging between $1,500 and $10,000 will be awarded to the non-profit organization for which each honoree volunteers. In 2007, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation donated more than $50,000 to local organizations. Rosie's Place, a shelter for poor and homeless women located in Boston's South End received $10,000 in the name of Sheila Aliber, the 2007 overall winner.

New England residents who are 13 years of age or older who provide volunteer services for non-profit 501(c)(3) or 509 organizations are eligible for nomination. Only one nominee may be considered from each organization. The strongest applicants will be hands-on volunteers and may not receive any compensation - monetary or otherwise - for their efforts.

Non-profit organizations may nominate volunteers by completing the application found here. Forms must be received by March 31, 2008.
