The Giants are back in town for their offseason program, and they're using one of their afternoons to make a difference in the Newtown, Conn., community.

About 25 Giants players will head up to Newtown this afternoon -- the site of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School last December -- to host a couple of football clinics for kids from the entire community, a Giants spokesman confirmed.

One Giants player, defensive end Matt Broha, posted on Twitter about the team's plans, writing, "Excited to head up to Newtown, CT with the team to play football with the kids from Sandy Hook. Going to be a fun afternoon!"

The Giants have lent their support in many ways to the Newtown community in the wake of the tragedy, writing the school's initials on the back of their helmets and hosting more than 400 members of the Newtown community at their season finale at MetLife Stadium. Receiver Victor Cruz, in particular, made a connection with the family of 6-year-old victim Jack Pinto, writing Pinto's name on his cleats and visiting with Pinto's family in Connecticut.
