Rob Gronkowski hand delivers $1.2 million to renovate Boston playground: ‘Special connection to New England’
Rob Gronkowski continues to give back to the city of Boston, even though the future Hall of Fame tight end has continued his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gronkowski wrote a $1.2 million check to renovate Charlesbank Playground in Boston, crediting his days with the New England Patriots behind the philanthropy.
“The Patriots taught me the importance of giving back from the very first day I stepped in that organization,” Gronkowski said, via Lisa Kashinsky of the Boston Herald. “A huge shout-out to Mr. Kraft (Patriots CEO Robert Kraft) and the Patriots for instilling that into me and showing me the importance of what it’s like to give back.
“No matter where I go or where I live, I will always have a special connection to New England and the people who live here.”
