Former New York Giants offensive lineman Justin Pugh may have a new team but what has not changed is Pugh’s giving attitude.

Pugh hosts an annual football camp for kids ages 8-14 at Council Rock High School North, every Summer where kids can glean the essential skills young athletes should be armed with to master the game of football, but also lessons and advice to carry them in life.  Pugh also gave out special prizes and gifts to the participants.

This past Sunday, Pugh also wore cleats adorned with the Fuel Up to Play 60 logo as part of the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats initiative.  This cause is near and dear to his heart as he wants to bring awareness to the importance of health, wellness and an active lifestyle for our nation’s youth.

With the upcoming holiday season looming upon us, Pugh wanted to do a little something to spread joy and cheer so this past Tuesday, December 10th, he took a group of kids from Heart for the City, an organization dedicated to helping inner-city kids giving love and hope to all,  to see a special advanced screening at the Studio Movie Grill, of the upcoming animated film “Spies in Disguise” starring Will Smith and Tom Holland in Phoenix, Arizona.  The movie comes out in theaters on Christmas /day, but these kids got an early Christmas present, getting to see it first while munching on goodies.  After the movie was finished, Pugh along with a little help from the jolly guy himself, Santa, surprised the kids with 200 gifts!  The kids were absolutely elated and smiles adorned the faces of everyone involved.  Everyone had a REEL good time!

These are just some of the awesome things Pugh has contributed to the community.  He has done and continues to do great work both on and off the field, making it easy to support him no matter what color he wears!
