Partnering with the Patriots


United Way of Mass Bay and the Pats are doing their job to make change that lasts.

NEW: Check out photos from the 2016 Hometown Huddle!

For over four decades, United Way and the National Football League have teamed up to tackle the biggest challenges in the community. Our relationship with the four-time world champion New England Patriots has yielded tremendous results for the families and individuals throughout the region.

From Foxboro to Boston to Lowell to Rochester, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine, it’s a safe bet that most households will be tuned in on Sunday afternoon to see the gridiron action go down at Gillette Stadium. And likewise, throughout that vast footprint, United Way of Mass Bay is working with partners just like the Patriots to harness the power of communities working together to make a difference in the lives of people in need.
