GWArc Volunteer Mace Miller Receives
Myra Kraft Community MVP Award
Congratulations to Mace Miller, GWArc's long time volunteer, who was honored as a Myra Kraft Community MVP by the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation at an awards ceremony at Gillette Stadium on June 9! This award is in recognition of his dedicated volunteer work at GWArc.
Mace was one of 26 volunteers from across New England selected from 400 nominees to receive this award, which included a $5,000 grant to GWArc in his honor. Mace received a trophy and was invited to walk onto the field, passing under the large inflated helmet used by the Patriots to enter the field.
Mace visits GWArc twice a month to conduct very popular interactive drumming and singing sessions with our participants. He also regularly visits nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the area.

Led by the Kraft family, attendees sang “Happy Birthday” for Mace’s 84th birthday, which was the next day.
