How do you give back?

Our Post-production video team was an integral part of our Hometown Huddle project this year, assembling 100 safety packages to accompany the bikes built earlier this month to make sure that kids are getting to school safely as part of the "Get 2 School, You Can Make It!" Campaign.

Name: Rob Conroy
Hometown: Columbus, OH
How they give back:
When asked about how he gives back, Rob said, "I've never volunteered before, but I think it's great for the kids to get new helmets and new bikes so they can get outside, enjoy the summer and get some exercise in addition to them making sure they can get to school and get an education."

Name: Jeff McDaniel
Hometown: Dublin, OH
How they give back:
Jeff used to be in the Air Force so he's definitely appreciative of those who volunteer to support military families and causes. He's not super into volunteering, but he's always helping others when he can. He was able to help out with his department today by packaging helmets and locks to help make sure kids are safe when they are riding their bikes to school.

Name: Nicholas Beesly
Hometown: Marysville, MI
How they give back:
Nick has been a member of the Browns video department for four years and has been helping to cover community events, and he always wants to volunteer more in the future and outside of work as well. He would definitely do things for the homeless in and around Cleveland and in the Lansing area because it's such a prominent issue.

Name: Keith Mollohan
Hometown: Akron, OH
How they give back:
Keith used to play basketball in high school and he took that passion to another level when he chose to give back to his old grade school by coaching 4th - 7th graders. The team wasn't that great but it was something he wanted to do because he remembers being that age and how much the coaches meant to him. Paying it forward is what it's all about, so when they were looking for a coach he jumped at the opportunity. More recently he helped do park cleanups and lake shorelines to help keep the earth clean by picking up litter with his bass fishing club.

Name: Anthony Baucco
Hometown: Mentor, OH
How they give back:
Anthony volunteered with his football team when he was younger spending time with the elderly and with athletes of all abilities making sure those who were handicapped felt included. He's also done marathon walks, tutored students in math, coached football camps for youth and more. This all created a foundation for his zeal to give back as a working adult, so he enjoys what the Browns do to give back. He hopes that all of the videos he creates will help inspire others to go out, volunteer and make the community a better place.
