New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck didn't just cut a check to help out with tornado relief in his home state of Alabama -- he put his 6'5", 275lb body to work!

Tuck went down to Tuscaloosa a few days ago to aid in a relief effort spearheaded by the World Vision organization and JP Morgan Chase.

Besides helping to distribute 750 hygiene kits -- made up of basic toiletries like toothbrushes and soap -- Tuck also personally donated $25k to the relief effort.

Tuck told USA Today, "I've never seen anything like this live. Obviously, I've seen things like this on television after Katrina, from Haiti and from Japan ... but I've never seen anything hit so close to home with the devastation these storms left."
