About the Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards: 
Each year, the Kraft family and the Patriots honor members of the New England community for their service to non-profit organizations around the region through the Community MVP Awards. In 2011, the Kraft family and Patriots Charitable Foundation announced the renaming of the award to the Myra Kraft Community MVP Award, in honor of Myra's life-long commitment to giving to others through volunteerism. Each year, Myra Kraft Community MVP winners are recognized for their leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities during a luncheon at Gillette Stadium with a donation made in their name to the non-profit organization for which they volunteer. Nominations traditionally open in the spring for 30 days.

Myra Kraft Community MVP Award Testimonial | By 2013 Grand Prize Winner: Joe Markarian
“Perkins has done more for me than I have ever done for Perkins. Volunteering in the Assistive Device Center has given me the opportunity to feel like I have contributed to something important during my retirement years. I feel really honored and surprised by this recognition.”

"I’m so grateful and so happy that Perkins is going to benefit from this. Perkins has done so much for me so I feel like I owe them anyway. I would really like to thank Myra Kraft because I think she had the big part to do with this.”
