How do you give back?
#give10

It’s been 5 years since the Browns' First and Ten Movement was born! We’re excited to share that players, coaches, staff and fans have chosen to #give10 and help inspire others to do the same. With nearly 2 million hours given back to the community, the Cleveland Browns are happy to provide an opportunity for you, your family and your friends to get out in the community, volunteer and help others. We’ve compiled a list of opportunities from our community partners that we hope will excite you to give back in a new way or start a new tradition today.

American Red Cross – The American Red Cross in the Northeast Ohio region encourages volunteers to give of their time to support the community. June 14 is World Blood Donor Day and they reach blood recipients in 19 counties, so find a blood drive or opportunity near you! There are a number of ways you can give back outside of the traditional blood donation:

  • Service to the Armed Forces Casework
  • Disaster Mental Health
  • Blood Services Donor Ambassador
  • Blood Services Transportation
  • Hands-Only CPR
  • Administrative Support
  • Disaster Cycle Services

They are always coming up with new ideas of how you can #give10 and help your community. Not a part of the movement? Take the pledge to #give10 and help your community today!

Greater Cleveland Food Bank – The Greater Cleveland Food Bank supports families in more than six counties in Northeast Ohio. They distribute food and provide meals for students on the weekends and special holidays when they may not otherwise receive food. Their doors are always open for individual and group volunteers.
