CLEVELAND — Several Cleveland Browns players kicked off the season of giving at the 9th Annual Feed the Need event at TownHall in Ohio City Tuesday.
When they are not giving it their all on the field, Cleveland’s professional athletes show up in a big way and give back.
Baker Mayfield and his wife Emily were among the athletes serving up a hot Thanksgiving meal to the community.
The public appearance comes amid a turbulent week for Mayfield, one in which he played poorly against the Lions, was booed by fans, left the stadium without speaking to the media and criticized fans when he spoke to reporters on Monday.
Other Browns players in attendance included Kareem Hunt, David Njoku, Jamie Gillan and Nick Chubb joined in plate meals for guests in attendance.
Ahead of Sunday’s game against the Ravens, Hunt has a message for fans.
The event ran from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at TownHall.
Also in Cleveland, defensive end Myles Garrett hosted a special Home for the Holidays event with the United Way of Greater Cleveland, taking part in an art project station while handing out winter gear and school supplies to students.
Safety Ronnie Harrison also took part in helping the community Tuesday, distributing meals at the B&G Club in Lorain.
