New England Patriots great Andre Tippett teamed up with Zak's Place in Woodstock to promote the importance of community volunteerism. Members and supporters of Zak's Place along with the public were invited to join the former Patriots player for an interactive discussion about volunteerism and social responsibility. Tippett commended the founders of Zak's Place for the great program they've established and spoke of the importance for more acts of this kind to be present in all communities. In addition to being an inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Tippett also serves as Executive Director of Community Affairs for the team. The Patriots mascot, Pat Patriot, was also on hand throughout the event to generate some extra smiles and photo opportunities for all whom attended.

Zak's place is an organization that offers enrichment programs to people of all ages and backgrounds with special needs. In May, the organization was given a $1,500 grant from the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation as part of the team's annual Community MVP program. Thursday's event was an additional celebration of the organization's work within the community.
