It’s been a busy few days for Curtis Granderson. He’s served as a Major League Baseball ambassador in South Korea and Japan, corrected his own entry on Wikipedia and made it back to the United States.

Now he’s heading to Staten Island to contribute to the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.

On Monday afternoon, Granderson and his Grand Kids Foundation will distribute backpacks, school supplies, books and teddy bears to kids at PS 39 in Staten Island. Before personally distributing the supplies, Granderson will go on a walking tour of areas affected by the storm.

“The devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York City and much of the Northeast affected so many families,” Granderson said in a statement. “In addition to lost lives, homes and businesses, the storm left thousands of students without essential school supplies. Thanks to the support of PwC, our (Grand Kids) program will provide educational resources to thousands of students affected by the storm.”
