New York Giants Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s Dreambuilders, Blessings in a Backpack, UnitedHealthcare Provide Food to New York City Children

November 20th, 2015

Dreambuilders and UnitedHealthcare kicked off the second year of their “food for children” collaborative with fun-filled, healthy activities for students at PS 15. Students pedaled blender bikes, making healthy smoothies for Dominique to taste-test. He also took students through some football-style warm-ups; threw the football with the students; and talked to them about the importance of being physically active and staying healthy.  Through Dreambuilders, Blessings in a Backpack and UnitedHealthcare, more than 250 in-need children at PS 15 in Manhattan, and PS 502 and PS 102 in Brooklyn will receive backpacks of healthy foods and snacks to take home over the weekends, when they may not otherwise have access to nutritious meals.
