SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and current New England Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy and his wife, Marissa, hosted a Christmas party for foster children and donated $25,000.

It was the Van Noy’s 8th annual “Very Van Noy Christmas” party.

This year, the couple hosted 183 foster kids from the Boston area. Van Noy and his wife donated $25,000 for personalized Christmas trees and gifts off of the children’s wish lists.

The Van Noy family runs the Van Noy Valor Foundation, who’s mission is to “encourage personal valor in the lives of adopted children, those in foster-care, & disadvantaged youth through resources & opportunities.”
