CLEVELAND — We’re in this unprecedented time together, and Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is the latest player to give to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic through food.

On Saturday, Garrett is teaming up with the Cleveland Hope Exchange and other local businesses to provide more than 24,000 pounds of food and additional resources to those in need in Cleveland’s Clark-Fulton neighborhood.

During the event, the organization hopes to raise $50,000.

Garrett joins his teammates Baker Mayfield and Larry Ogunjobi who made donations to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam also pledged $1.5 million in relief funds.

Residents of the neighborhood can drive through or walk through a line at Journey Church Metro Campus, 3381 Fulton Road between 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., to pick up fresh produce, dry food, canned goods, hygiene kits and other resources.
