Giants Coat Drive benefitting New York Cares
The New York Giants and New York Cares will host their fifteenth annual Coat Drive this Sunday.  Giants Fans are encouraged to donate their gently worn coats by bringing them to either of the Fed Ex trucks parked in front of the MetLife and Verizon Gates prior to the game, or to New York Cares volunteers who will be at every entrance gate. New York Cares is a non-profit organization that helps warm thousands of men, women and children by providing winter coats to homeless shelters, community organizations, centers for battered women, and agencies serving senior citizens across the metropolitan area.  Donations are more appreciated than ever before.

Play 60 Celebration Week
Please join the Giants, NFL and American Heart Association in celebrating "Play 60 Week."  Students from Little Falls, NJ, who recently completed the Play 60 Challenge will represent the Giants on-field as the team runs through the tunnel on Sunday.  They will be joined by several students from Bayonne Public Schools who participate in the Fuel Up to Play 60 Program with the National Dairy Council.  The Play 60 Challenge is an official NFL campaign geared towards encouraging kids of all ages to increase their daily physical activity. Known as "The NFL Movement for an Active Generation," this program inspires children to get physically active for 60 minutes every day. With the hope of tackling childhood obesity through consistent in-school, after-school and team-based programs, the NY Giants hope to support the future generation of healthy and active stars.

This week's game against Green Bay is presented by United, the official airline of the New York Giants.  Every attendee of this week's game will receive a Giants luggage tag from United on the way out of the stadium at the conclusion of the game.

MetLife Plaza
Come meet Giants legend Roman Oben who will be signing autographs from 6:45 to 7:45pm.  Fans of all ages are encouraged to check out the activities at The Turf at MetLife Central, with various interactive drills, including a new field goal kick with real uprights and a fan tunnel leading onto the field.  Don't forget to high-five Snoopy for good luck on your way through the MetLife Gate.
