During the holiday season, the Patriots are all about giving back, and one of their annual charitable efforts is known as “Gifts From the Gridiron.”
The event takes 50 children from local shelters, pairs them up with Patriots players and gives them $400 to spend at Bass Pro Shops as they see fit. Vince Wilfork was one of the players who participated this year, and he says that just having the opportunity to help out a kid is the greatest feeling of all.
