New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola introduced his third “Catch a Book Room” at Edgar B. Davis Elementary in Boston on Nov. 16. The reading room provides access to 600 age-appropriate books and a dedicated area where students and their families can read, learn and explore together.

Amendola’s “Catch a Book Room” is an extension of his Catches for Kids Foundation, which has a mission of improving the lives of low-income children and their families in need by providing daily opportunities, support, resources and life-changing experiences.

"It is honestly just so humbling to be named Week 11 NFLPA Community MVP,” said Amendola, who received a citation by the mayor for his community work. “I didn’t think it could get any better after running through the halls of Edgar B. Davis and high fiving over a thousand kids, so this is definitely a cherry on top and further sparks our mission to provide colorful and fun environments for kids to come and grow themselves through reading.”
