Myles Garrett and Nick Chubb of the Browns teamed up with TownHall to give back to the community ahead of Thanksgiving. 

On Tuesday, TownHall in Ohio City hosted its 10th annual "Feed the Need" event to pass out 4,000 free turkey dinners to those less fortunate. Garrett and Chubb were joined by a bevy of volunteers, including fellow Cleveland and Ohio sports stars Darius Garland, Bernie Kosar, and C.J. Stroud.

“TownHall has hosted Feed The Need for the last nine years and is proud to continue supporting the local community," TownHall owner Bobby George said. "This event is the highlight of our year."

Joel Bitonio, David Njoku, Kareem Hunt, John Johnson III, Jedrick Wills Jr., Donovan Peoples-Jones, Greg Newsome II, Pharaoh Brown, Kellen Mond and Perrion Winfrey joined their teammates at the event that has become a staple of the holiday season. Garrett's mother, Audrey, also pitched in and couldn't be prouder of her son for helping the community.

"It means we did something right," she said of Myles' upbringing. "We didn't do it perfectly, but we did something right if he continues to understand that to whom much is given, much is required. He'll be okay."

Since the event's inception in 2013, TownHall has distributed more than 40,000 Thanksgiving meals. The restaurant is also collecting gently used outerwear, hats, scarves, sweaters, mittens and jackets both there and at Rebol in Cleveland.

Everyone who donates to the campaign will receive a free organic coffee or bone broth. All donated items will be professionally cleaned and distributed to those in need during Feed the Need. 

TownHall is also raising and matching funds to support St. Augustine's effort to feed those in need. All donations made to TownHall will go directly to St. Augustine. 

This year, in addition to Feed the Need, TownHall is launching Feed the Breed. Several Townhall ambassadors will deliver hundreds of free turkey dinners to the Cleveland Animal Protective League and the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter.
