For 25 years, the Kraft family and the New England Patriots Foundation recognize exceptional volunteers who give back to their communities with the Myra Kraft Community Awards program. On June 8th, our chair, Elizabeth Keeley, became one of 26 recipients to receive an award for her contributions to helping those who are experiencing homelessness and hunger.
Through the award, the Mission received $10,000 to further our cause of transforming and empowering homeless lives to achieve healthy and self-sufficient lives.
“I am honored to be selected for this award named for Myra Kraft’s philanthropy and commitment to volunteering. Thank you to the Kraft Family and the New England Patriots for recognizing the valuable and essential contributions made by volunteers to nonprofit organizations. I am proud to support the critical work of the Boston Rescue Mission which has resulted in tens of thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness to live healthier and more productive lives. Volunteering with different organizations over the past 40+ years has increased my understanding of and empathy for the serious challenges many of our neighbors must contend with in life. These volunteer experiences have enriched my life and for this, I am most grateful.”
The Mission is extremely proud of Elizabeth for her achievement and thankful to the Kraft family and the New England Patriots Foundation for recognizing the efforts Elizabeth has taken for our neighbors in need in Boston.
