New York Giants visit Newtown Youth Academy in Newtown, CT

The New York Football Giants continue their community outreach and overall support of the communities of Newtown and Sandy Hook, Connecticut by visiting the Newtown Youth Academy (NYA) today. The visit, which was attended by nearly 25 New York Giants football players was advertised as a clinical for the families associated with the Sandy Hook Community. ‘

Shortly after the events of 12/14/2012 the New York Giants invited family and first responders associated with Sandy Hook/Newtown to their home game. Those individuals were honored on the MetLife field along with a short meet and great with Giants players, coaches, and staff. Also, WR Victor Cruz developed a special bond with the family of Jack Pinto. Crux visited privately with the Pinto family during the season. It was widely reported that Cruz said that visiting with the family gave him great strength but also was one of his hardest days as a professional athlete.

The visit to NYA today by the Giants showed their continue dedication to the communities in the greater NY/NJ/CT area. The Giants did not go out of there way to publize the event to the media and/or profit in any way by conducting today’s event. By visiting Newtown/Sandy Hook roughly four months after that tragic day the Giants continue to demonstrate their dedication to helping Newtown/Sandy Hook heal and move forward. Good Job GIANTS.
