*How do you give back?#give10

Name: Jennifer Jolliff
How they give back: 
Jennifer is a Hope House volunteer who has been visiting and assisting the organization for the past three months. She learned about Hope House 10 years ago while volunteering at a food pantry with a friend. While she didn't jump right on the opportunity it had always been in the back of her mind. Lately she really wanted to feel more connected to her community and thought the time was right to contact Hope House. She's not currently volunteering at any other location because she works full-time, studies for her master's degree and raising a family, but she looks to get even more involved in the future because she enjoys working with Hope House and the opportunity it provides others.

Name: Tyler Curtain
How they give back:
Tyler works to assist Martin Luther King Jr. High School and its football program. Starting a high school football program will be no easy task and it will require a huge amount of support, but he's extremely excited for the opportunities that the young men can engage in to #give10. He coaches because he believes that football builds men by creating and teaching self-discipline, accountability, social skills, team work, leadership, and more. He won't stop because it's all about investing in the future of the young men in his program.

Name: Paul Holland
How they give back: 
Paul is a former United States Marine Corps service member. Now, he works with the local National Marine Corps Business Network. In addition to both of these roles affiliated with the armed forces, he is the development director for a local organization that strives to address and eliminate homelessness in the surrounding area. On a weekly basis Paul can be found volunteering for a domestic violence organization. He is extremely devoted to this cause and hopes to make a difference in any way that he can.

Name: Bill Mull
How they give back: 
Bill is a die-hard Browns fan who focuses primarily on his individual commitment to #give10. He looks for ways to help his community by donating financially to causes. He also donates to his local blood drive as well as the annual Cleveland Browns blood drive each summer. He started donating blood many years ago. He realized how his choice to #give10 could really help someone in need after his father passed away. Bill has donated more than two gallons of blood since 2015. He knows that it's a simple way he can help someone in need.

Name: Kelly Mohn
How they give back: 
Kelly is a key member of the Lake Erie Islands Browns Backers. The LEIBB is a non-profit organization established in 2001. This year the LEIBB donated money to local, regional and national foundations and charities including the Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Department and EMS, St. Paul's Episcopal Church Food Pantry, Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary, Ottawa County "Kids for Christmas" which puts food on the table and a present under the tree for local area families in need, Back to the Wild and finally Chestnut Mountain Ranch which is a Christ-centered safe haven for boys and families in crisis located in West Virginia. Their commitment to community involvement is unwavering and they will continue to support in any way that they can.

The Browns are dedicated to #give10 through the team's First and Ten initiative. Launched in June 2014, the Cleveland Browns First and Ten campaign is the team's community program, established to inspire fans to volunteer in and help their communities throughout the world by volunteering for 10 hours each year. Since its inception, Browns fans have committed to volunteering more than 1 million hours to impact their communities by pledging to #give10. Through First and Ten, the Browns are the only NFL club to promote a long-term volunteering program that unifies the team and its entire fan base, with the goal of impacting every individual's city across the globe, as well as the franchise's local community. All Browns fans are encouraged to join the volunteering effort by signing the First and Ten pledge on the team's website and by sharing their stories with #give10
