CLEVELAND — A Cleveland homeless shelter and a Pittsburgh homeless shelter are competing to raise money for the homeless in their city.

Starting at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday until 8:20 p.m. on Thursday, the City Mission is hoping to raise at least $10,000.

Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey has donated $1,000 to the City Mission and will be giving one lucky fan who donates at least $100 a chance to win the ultimate Browns prize package, which includes two tickets to a game, Browns hoodie, Browns pennant, autographed football and autographed jersey.

The City Mission serves three hot meals for 250 people every day of the week.

Light of Life Rescue Mission in Pittsburgh approached The City Mission in August about creating this challenge in honor of the traditional Browns-Steelers rivalry.

“The rivalry between the Browns and Steelers already brings a sense of pride to Cleveland. But when we’re able to put it to good use by rallying the community around the thousands of moms, kids, and individuals experiencing homelessness in our city, that generosity gives us even more to be proud of,” shares Rich Trickel, CEO of The City Mission.
