Coach Kennedy dresses as Santa Claus, and the athletes also deliver cookies and candies throughout the City of Newburgh.

“This is our 4th year helping to deliver presents,” said Coach Kennedy, “and we also adopt families who we know are in need, buy them presents, and deliver to them as well. It’s important to give back to the community.”
