CLEVELAND — One of the newest members of the Cleveland Browns, tight end Austin Hooper, is already making a difference off the field with a $10,000 donation to the “Feed the Nurses Challenge,” which allowed Sauce the City to provide 1,000 chicken sandwiches to MetroHealth nurses and staff at lunch today.

“I’m learning a lot about Cleveland lately and MetroHealth really stands out as a place that is dedicated to caring for the community it serves and committed to addressing the factors that adversely impact health,” Hooper said. “This is a way to honor these people who are finding solutions to address the disparities that are impacting people’s wellbeing. What better way to say thank you than partnering with Sauce the City Cleveland to serve up ‘Cleveland’s Best Chicken Sandwich.’”

Sauce the City Cleveland is back open for takeout and delivery at their location in the Galley Building in Ohio City at 1400 W. 25th Street.

“What this young man is doing to support hospital employees and support a local business says a great deal about the role he will play as he comes into this city as the newest member of the Cleveland Browns,” said Sauce the City owner Victor Searcy, who also spearheaded the Feed the Nurses Challenge. “He gets it. He sees the need and is generously stepping up to give back.”
