Robert Kraft and the New England Patriots committed yet another heartwarming and selfless act during the holiday season.
Via Dan Spector of Global News, a Patriots’ team plane was used to help bring several stranded travelers home to the Canadian province of Quebec.
Maryse Plourde of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean area of Quebec spoke to Global News and explained what happened. Plourde and a group of 13 others were left stranded in a resort at the Dominican Republic.
They were supposed to be taken to the airport via shuttle on Dec. 27, but it never arrived. They waited at the airport for three days before receiving some wonderful news on Dec. 30: A Patriots’ team plane would be used to help them finally get home.
“It was incredible,” Plourde said. “It was very comfortable.”
It’s just another classy and kind move on the end of the Patriots’ organization.
Two weeks ago, a viral video of a Las Vegas Raiders fan angrily screaming at a New England Patriots fan (following their Week 15 game at Allegiant Stadium) went viral. The Patriots fan, Jerry Edmond, was widely praised for staying calm during the ordeal.
Kraft saw the video and invited him to the Patriots’ ensuing Week 16 home game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Edmond met Kraft in person, received a FaceTime video from Jay-Z and got to meet Bill Belichick and Patriots on the field ahead of the game.
