WASHINGTON, D.C. – Lawrence Guy has been named this season’s Week 13 NFLPA Community MVP after he donated 40 baby strollers to Black and indigenous mothers experiencing hardship in the Greater Boston area. 

“I am so honored to be named the NFLPA Community MVP,” Guy said. “The Lawrence Guy Family Foundation’s community involvement and commitment is essential because it allows us to connect with and support those around us that are in need.”

The New England Patriots defensive lineman and his wife, Andrea, visited Brookside Community Health Center in Jamaica Plain, MA on November 28 to connect with some of the mothers who received their impactful gift. The strollers were also distributed to other Mass General Brigham (MGB) health centers in the region, including Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center, Charlestown HealthCare Center, Chelsea HealthCare Center and Revere HealthCare Center.

This marks the second time in as many months that Guy has provided support for mothers in need. In October, his foundation hosted its third annual Charity Baby Shower at Gilette Stadium, featuring a luncheon and more than $60,000 worth of products, including diapers, strollers, car seats, clothes and cribs to show his appreciation and support for these underserved, expectant moms.

“We love to be able to create a positive impact that extends beyond our individual lives,” said Guy, who also earned Community MVP honors in 2021. “Through giving back, we can build stronger, more resilient communities for the benefit of all.”

True to his word, the Guys have been extremely active since launching their foundation in 2019 to provide resources and opportunities for financially disadvantaged families. To kick off this school year, they provided backpacks filled with supplies for 150 middle schoolers. 

Then in November, the non-profit hosted its 13th annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive, serving 230 families and more $12,000 worth of donated food at Chittick Elementary School – the same school that his foundation recently adopted to provide needed support and resources. 

In honor of Guy being named this week’s Community MVP, the NFLPA is making a $10,000 contribution to his foundation or charity of choice. In turn, Guy will take part in a virtual or in-person visit to a school or children’s hospital. Along with the other 2023-24 Community MVPs, he will also become eligible for this year’s Alan Page Community Award, which is the highest honor that the NFLPA can bestow upon a player.  

Now in its 10th season, the Community MVP campaign is part of the NFLPA’s continued efforts to support the year-round, civic outreach and engagement of its player members. Please visit the NFLPA Community MVP website to learn more about the program.

The NFLPA has shown that it will do whatever is necessary to assure that the rights of players are protected—including ceasing to be a union, if necessary, as it did in 1989.

The current CBA will govern the sport through the 2030 NFL season. Learn more at
