Giants help, pledge $500K to Hurricane Sandy relief

The New York Giants made use of their off-day Tuesday when they shipped up to the New Jersey shore, State Island and a handful of food banks to help those who needed relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

The G-Men pledged $500,000 to the New Jersey Relief Fund, founded by Gov. Chris Christie, and the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.

Eli Manning went to Staten Island with the American Red Cross, while eight other Giants went to Seaside Heights and offered their hands not to catch TD passes, but distribute food. On hand was Steve Weatherford, Prince Amukamara, Marcus Kuhn, David Douglas, Brandon Mosley, Matt Broha, Terrence Fredrick and Laron Scott.

Others, including Justin Tuck, Kevin Boothe, David Baas, Domenik Hixon, Bear Pascoe, Jim Cordie and Lawrence “Party” Tynes, were at the New Jersey Food Back helping to make sandwiches for relief workers. (Only fitting Tuck – a Subway sponsor – would make sandwiches).
