Amanda is a part of Game Changers Sports who enjoy giving back as much as they can. All of the volunteers/kids who are a part of this organization will be giving back by helping with "A Home For Christmas" where they will be giving a home to a grandmother who has recently taken in her granddaughter and autistic grandson due to their mother who was killed in June in a domestic violence situation. Game Changers Sports are also active supporters of the Cleveland Browns. The children who are a part of this group have been given the opportunity to attend the Play 60 camp, training camp, and a pre-season game. Thank you for your efforts Amanda and the rest of the Game Changers Sports community!

Myles gives back to the community by keeping pedestrians on the streets safe and out of trouble. Kyles and his crew handle a lot of parking enforcement on the streets while also handling Euclid beach to get people to and from their destination. To keep those safe, Myles also helped direct traffic during various parades that go on in Ohio. Along with this Myles helped out at the Junior Police Academy, creating valuable and special relationships between the kids that were a part of it. Since it is so important to keep pedestrians safe on the streets and outside, we can't thank Myles and his team enough for all that they do to keep the community in good hands! Thank you Myles.
