New York Giants Victor Cruz & Campbell's Chunky Soup help feed the hungry at eva's soup kitchen
Victor Cruz, a New York Giant’s wide receiver, who was born in Paterson NJ, was a giver this last Thanksgiving (2012) helping to serve meals to hungry, including Campbell’s Soup, at Eva’s Village'S Eva’s Kitchen. Campbell’s donated over 5000 cans of Chunky soup to the soup kitchen. Said Cruz:
Eva’s Village felt like the perfect partnership to come back and give back to my hometown. I can definitely relate, in one way shape or form, to the people Eva’s serves. I’m here to listen to them, talk to them, to bring, I hope, a smile to their faces, and to help those less fortunate going through some tough times during the holidays.
