How do you give back?
#give10

Name: Josh Cribbs
Hometown: Washington, DC
How they give back:
Browns Alumni Josh Cribbs has been working hard to assist the team in any way that he can. While doing so he has also been very active in the community. During the Cleveland Browns High School Showcase he came out to speak to nearly 200 student athletes about the importance of working hard and staying focused. He has also chose to #give10 and help the community by visiting with students from OhioGuidestone’s Stepstone Academy where he had the chance to celebrate Read Across America Day.

Name: James Box
Hometown: Cleveland, OH
How they give back:
James was recently recognized for his service to the City of Cleveland for more than 30 years. His advocacy spans the gamut of youth services, social justice and racial relations. He hopes that his work will leave a legacy in the Greater Cleveland area and beyond. He has worked with the Cleveland Peacemakers Alliance and the National Amer-I-Can program. He is also trained in supporting low-risk defendants and convicts re-enter society to get back on their feet. James values his family, his faith and the community he is so passionate about.

Name: Judy Daub       
Hometown: Avon, OH            
How they give back:
Judi is the community outreach coordinator for the Super Heroes to Kids in Ohio. This nonprofit helps patients endure adversity by dressing up as crusaders. She and two friends began the organization nearly eight years ago because they wanted to help brighten the day of children who are currently undergoing treatment. They pride themselves on simple acts of kindness, recognizing individuals who have battled through adversity, and encouraging the involvement of community to make a positive difference in the lives of children. They do it because they love to see the smiles on the kid’s faces and they believe in the end the kids are the real heroes.

Name: Randall Telfer
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
How they give back:
Randall has been more than supportive in his community. He has worked to impact the Cleveland area in more ways than one and his hard work has definitely paid off. He was recognized as this year’s Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee for his dedication to causes off the field. He is connected with the Boo2Bullying organization and campaign. He also is connected to the American Diabetes Association. Recently he and other Team Tackle ambassadors went to Washington, D.C. to help influence legislators and support those who are currently living with diabetes and their families.

Name: Corey Kinder
Hometown: Cleveland, OH
How they give back:
Corey is a selfless member of the Cleveland Browns staff who works day in and day out to make everyone around him better. He is committed to the community and it shows. Corey volunteers at a number of Browns Give Back events throughout the year where he leads gracefully to help the organization impact schools, nonprofits and families in poverty. He sits on the Market at the FoodBank Board, and frequently volunteers with the Random Acts of Kindness group and recently visited a school to read and play with children to encourage improved literacy levels.
