Giants Wide Receiver Victor Cruz Brings Fire Safety Program to the Boys & Girls Club

Nearly 100 children from the Greenwich and Stamford Boys & Girls Clubs came to the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich on October 17 wearing Victor Cruz jerseys as the New York Giants wide receiver paid a special visit to the club to help the Greenwich Fire Department present a Fire Safety & Science Program and conduct a demonstration for fourth, fifth and sixth graders. Cruz talked about spending much of his childhood at a Boys & Girls Club in Patterson, NJ, and how because his father was a firefighter for 25 years, he felt it was important to share this opportunity with Boys & Girls Club children. Cruz signed autographs and took pictures with the children, who got the chance to rotate through four fire stations, teaching the science of fires, what to do if you are caught in one, how to put one out, and the ins and outs of a firetruck. All the children left with goodies, including fire safety packets Giants cupcakes. The Victor Cruz Foundation, which Cruz started in 2012 to help implement STEM programs for today’s youth, has partnerships with Connect a Million Minds and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
