Former Browns Joe Thomas, Andrew Hawkins partner with Children's Hunger Alliance to help those in need during COVID-19 pandemic


Former Browns Andrew Hawkins and Joe Thomas have announced their joint donation to the Ohio based nonprofit, Children's Hunger Alliance (CHA) to help feed children in Ohio communities that are being impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

CHA is dedicated to ensuring food-insecure children throughout Ohio have adequate access to food to grow and learn. The urgency to feed these children is even greater as a result of the coronavirus. The statewide organization is committed to helping feed children who have lost access to meals by working closely with community partners to help meet the needs of children in Ohio.

For every dollar donated, Hawkins and Thomas will personally match the donation up to $50,000 with a total goal of $100,000 raised by the Browns legends and their robust fanbase.

After playing together on the Cleveland Browns for three years, Hawkins and Thomas created The ThomaHawk Show, one of the most popular sports podcasts throughout the state of Ohio. A ten-time Pro Bowl selection with the Browns, Thomas was a fixture for the organization and is the only lineman in NFL history to be selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first 10 seasons. Now, in addition to his work with The ThomaHawk Show, Thomas also serves as an analyst for NFL Network and Thursday Night Football. Hawkins, who played collegiately at the University of Toledo before playing six years in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns, is a former Browns team captain and currently works in a multi-platform role for NFL digital/social and the NFL Network​​.
