THE BRONX - Yankees' pitcher CC Sabathia surprised children with gifts at the Boys & Girls Club in the Bronx Wednesday.

Lisa Williams, the mother of two young boys, Jordan and Justin, thought they were attending an ugly sweater party at the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, but instead they received a surprise visit from Sabathia.

The 12 Days of Giving is a nationwide initiative to give children a better Christmas, the Boys & Girls club says. 

Sabathia, a former member of Boys & Girls, says he started attending at the age of six in his hometown in California.

“I grew up in the Boys & Girls Club,” he says. “I know just how tough it is growing up in a single-parent home.”

The organization says it will continue to surprise children with gifts through the month of December.
