Patriots past and present — including Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo, Devin McCourty, Zoltan Mesko, Donald Thomas, Rob Ninkovich, Kyle Love, Steve Gregory, Shane Vereen, and Ron Brace — gathered at Bass Pro Shops at Patriot Place on Tuesday for “Gifts From the Gridiron,” an annual shopping event for kids affiliated with Massachusetts and Rhode Island homeless shelters. More than 50 youngsters took part in the event, which gave them an opportunity to pick up toys, winter coats, and Christmas presents for family members. Brace also celebrated his birthday during the party. He was given a cupcake by Pat Patriot (the team mascot) and was serenaded by the group. The “Gridiron” event was put on by the Patriots Charitable Foundation, the Vince Wilfork Foundation, the New England Patriots Alumni Club, and Bass Pro Shops.
