For those fans attending Sunday's game, it appears you'll be receiving something to wear to honor Myra Kraft when you arrive at the stadium this weekend.

The team issued a press release a few minutes ago which revealed that the Patriots plan on distributing 70,000 pins to all the fans who will be attending Sunday's home opener against San Diego.

The pins will resemble the same 'MHK' patches that the players are wearing this season to honor her memory.

This year, in Myra's honor, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation has announced a season-long initiative to "Celebrate Volunteerism," which will aim to inspire others to volunteer as well as highlight individuals who have dedicated their lives to serving and helping others. The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation also announced that they will annually honor dozens of New England's most deserving philanthropists at a ceremony in the spring with the presentation of the recently renamed Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards.

Mrs. Kraft passed away July 20th after a long battle with cancer.
