GOOD NEWS: Patriots Donate Fans’ Game Blankets To Warm Homeless

The New England Patriots want to help cover the homeless from the arctic air freezing the area and they got some help from their fans to get the job done. Fans brought blankets to keep themselves warm as they watched the game at Gillette Stadium last week and the team encouraged folks to leave them behind afterwards.

The 1,200 blankets were laundered and folded and now some of them are set to be distributed at Boston’s Pine Street Inn, which provides shelter and other services to the homeless. The Patriots say the rest of the blankets, as well as some hats and gloves, will be donated to homeless shelters in each of the five other New England states.
