CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns continue to show their dedication for the city and community-members in Northeast Ohio.
On Thursday, University Hospitals (UH) and the NFL team announced that the Browns made a $21,000 donation to UH's Caregiver Fund. In a press release, the team says that the contribution is apart of the Browns' "Hats Off to Our Heroes" campaign.
UH's fund was created at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and aims to provide aid and assistance to University Hospital workers.
“University Hospitals is honored to be a beneficiary of the Cleveland Browns’ generosity. Our partnership with the Browns organization is a valued part of our commitment to the community we serve. Thank you for recognizing the valiant efforts of our caregivers. We will honor them as stewards of your generous gift,” said Cliff A. Megerian, MD, FACS, University Hospitals President.
The "Hats Off to Our Heroes" Fund was established by the Browns in early-April and focuses on healthcare professionals, first responders, educational professionals, and other frontline workers.
The Browns also made donations this week to the Maple Heights School District and the Medworks Uncondivitional COVID-19 Relief Fund, totaling more than $80,000.
The Browns will recognize the three beneficiaries of the "Hats Off to Our Heroes" Fund during this Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
