We know Cleveland is "All In" for the Cavaliers in the playoffs, but Kevin Love is "All In" when it comes to giving back to the community. We found out how as tonight's Romona's Kids team up with the Cavs star.

Students from Cleveland's East Technical High School recently got a special meet and greet with Cavs forward Kevin Love. The teens completed the most acts of kindness and volunteer projects in the SpreadLove4:Good program, sponsored by the Cavaliers star and unite4:Good Foundation.

"It makes me a better person. It helps you grow as a person," said student Carl Brown.
 
Students joined one of five teams at school, each paired with a nonprofit group, like the Animal Protective League and Cleveland Clinic. The students even put together a health fair. 

"It gets kids excited. It gets you to help people out and as you're helping, you're also helping others and yourself," said student Shay Jones.

The teens also took to social media and got dozens of students and teachers to sign a pledge to stop smoking for a day.

"It makes you more health conscious. It makes you more community-based. So it's a great program," said student Vincent Brown.

Some of the teens are now thinking about health care careers. 

"We even enrolled a few students who had high GPAs into one of our Junior Ambassador programs, where they'll intern at the Cleveland Clinic this summer," said Antwan Steele, Cleveland Clinic patient navigator. 

"Hopefully, we can compound and continue with the partnership next year and do even greater things for the community," said East Tech principal Temujim Taylor.

"Spread Love for good for everybody. Spread love to make the world a better place," said Carl Brown.
