]()Several New England Patriots players spent their day off at Otis Air National Guard Base at Camp Edwards on Cape Cod on Monday, delivering much-needing clothing items to the families displaced to the base in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Patriots players Kevin Faulk, Bethel Johnson, Don Davis and Eric Alexander, along with assistant strength and conditioning coach, Harold Nash, drove to the base to deliver the goods and meet with the 200 people currently staying at the base.
Faulk, who hails from Louisiana and attended LSU, encouraged his teammates to clean out their closets and bring gently used clothing items to the stadium yesterday. Nearly the entire team brought in bags and boxes of shoes, men's clothes, women's clothes and baby clothes to be donated to the families. From there, Faulk packed up a truck with the thousands of items to transport them to the base.
The Patriots contingent spent several hours with the evacuees, signing autographs and posing for pictures. In addition to Faulk, Alexander and Nash also have ties to the Gulf region; Alexander attended LSU and Nash is a native of New Orleans and attended Louisiana-Lafayette.
