Cleveland - The Cleveland Browns and local Marines will host their annual Browns Give Back First and Ten Toy Drive, presented by Electronic Merchant Systems, to benefit Toys for Tots at FirstEnergy Stadium prior to Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
During the Browns Give Back First and Ten Toy Drive, Browns fans are encouraged to bring new unwrapped gifts ($10+) for kids in need within Cuyahoga County. US Marine Corps and Electronic Merchant Systems volunteers will collect items and monetary contributions at FirstEnergy Stadium gates as fans enter the stadium beginning at 11 a.m.
Electronic Merchant Systems once again will launch the toy drive through a generous $5,000 contribution to further help in providing many deserving Northeast Ohio children with a memorable holiday.
The Browns, Electronic Merchant Systems and Cleveland fans have collected approximately $50,000, plus more than 1,500 toy donations for local youth during the holidays through the Browns Give Back First and Ten Toy Drive during the past two years combined.
Through the Browns Give Back First and Ten Toy Drive, as well as the team’s announcement of the 2019 Cleveland Browns High School Coach of the Year, Sunday marks Day 1 of Cleveland’s annual “10 Days of Giving” initiative. On each day of “10 Days of Giving,” spanning Dec. 8-17, Browns players, coaches and staff will host unique community events and make special contributions to various organizations during the holiday season as part of the team’s yearlong commitment to education, youth football and inspiring others through its signature First and Ten volunteering movement.
Fans who make a donation at FirstEnergy Stadium will receive an orange #give10 wristband for their support of the First and Ten campaign.
