Patriots provide team plane for Stoneman Douglas High School students

Robert Kraft and the New England Patriots lent their team plane to students and the families of victims of the Parkland shooting on Thursday, taking them to Washington D.C.so they can take part in the "March for Our Lives" event planned for this weekend.

Robert Kraft (r.), seen here celebrating latest Super Bowl win with Donald Trump as the White House, used the Patriots plane to fly families of the Stoneman Douglas school shooting victims to D.C.

Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, operate an anti-gun violence organization, and reached out to Kraft for assistance.

"Not only did their friends and teachers get shot and killed, other friends shot and injured. majority they had bullets flying over their heads", he said.

James told the Boston Globe that Kraft was not on the flight and he was unaware if any Patriots players were on board the plane.

Kelly said the students wanted to go to the march and they wanted to do what they could to make that happen.

The plane will also fly the students and families back home after the march, the team spokesman added.

Trump has previously bragged about his close relationship with the Patriots and Kraft and hosted them at the White House after they won Super Bowl LI - something he "rescinded" from the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors.

Thousands of people are expected to participate in the march in Washington to call for stricter gun control measures Saturday, according to event organizers.
