star Leandro Barbosa doesn't need a red suit and a beard to play Santa -- in fact, the guard handed out piles of gifts to underprivileged children in Boston yesterday ... wearing nothing but normal street clothes.

A rep for Barbosa tells TMZ, he threw a giant holiday party at the Lenox Housing Development for roughly 80 children -- between the ages of 6 and 16 -- just because he felt like giving back to the community.

Along with a huge array of gifts -- one for each kid -- Barbosa brought 30 delicious PIZZAS.

Mmmmm pizza.

Ive been doing that for ten years, on a salary that is probably 1000th of what he makes at the most. Good to see though.

I can't help but notice the slight sarcasm at the end of this post, like pizza and a gift for each kid wasn't good enough. smh.
