The team continued to show their compassion and support of fans, surprising local kids and families with a night filled of gifts, pizza, and memories during the Browns' Snowball Distribution event at CrossCountry Mortgage Campus.
Twelve families from Project ACT arrived at the facility expecting pizza and left with bags of gifts and an unforgettable evening thanks to the great work of Project ACT and the Browns. Project ACT works in Cleveland Metropolitan School District, a partner district of the Browns "Stay in the Game! Keep Learning Everyday" Network, to provide support services for youth in temporary living situations.
Throughout the night, players played catch and interacted with the families learning about their situations and goals as well as providing advice and encouragement. Before the night was over, everyone received a pizza and snacks to take home.
The Browns' work with Project ACT did not end there. A few weeks later, with the assistance of Levin Furniture, 20 new mattresses were donated to children in need. In addition to the mattresses the Browns provided bed frames, pillows, and bedding, providing 20 kids in foster care with a new bed set.
One player's goal of being able to provide for a family in need around the holidays snowballed into the entire organization supporting families and students in their local community.
Project ACT works to ensure that all students in CMSD have the resources to succeed in and out of the classrooms and the Browns staff and players are proud to have been able to support them this past holiday season.
