New York Giants-United Way of New York City 2016 Hometown Huddle

On Monday, October 17th over 100 NFL employees, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, New York Giants players Janoris Jenkins, Donte Deayon and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, as well as New York Jets legend, Tony Richardson teamed up with United Way of New York City for a day of service increasing youth health and wellness.


Volunteers transformed outdoor learning spaces at East Success Gardens Park, a 40,000 square-foot community garden—painting murals and sheds, conducting garden maintenance, and building garden beds, picnic tables, and more. Volunteers also facilitated a PLAY 60 fitness clinic for 110 4th and 5th graders from Brooklyn Gardens Elementary School—bringing the field to students in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
