MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Two New York Giants players visited children at the Boys & Girls Club in Mount Vernon as part of an episode of "The Hookup" that airs Saturday and Sunday on the YES network.
Wide receiver Victory Cruz and defensive back Prince Amukamara are featured in the episode.
Amukamara went to the Boys & Girls Club of Mount Vernon, where he spent time with the kids and spoke to them about the importance of their education and the power of finding positive influences in their lives. Sony Electronics was on hand to present a $20,000 check to the club’s directors, which will be used to aid the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program for 2016.
STEM is an initiative close to the players' hearts that focuses on bringing science, technology, engineering and math to children through hands-on learning.
Air times are 4 p.m. Saturday and 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
