FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots are currently accepting nominations for the 2006 Community MVP Awards Program.
The New England Patriots Community MVP Awards honor individuals who exemplify leadership, dedication and a commitment to improving the communities in which they live through volunteerism.
Several winners will be chosen and grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to the non-profit organization for which each honoree volunteers. Last year, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation donated more than $50,000 to local organizations through a similar program.
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 at www.patriots.com/community. Forms must be received by April 21, 2006.
