Browns partners with Lorain City Schools to improve attendance

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Browns Foundation launched the “Titan Pride Uniform Program” Dec. 4. kicking off an effort to reduce truancy by providing clothing for students in need.

Browns players DB T.J. Carrie, K Greg Joseph, DB Terrance Mitchell and DL Chad Thomas presented the Lorain City School District with a check from the Browns Foundation.

The organization is hoping to reduce missed days because deserving students do not have suitable clothing and shoes for school.

The “Titan Pride Uniform Program” will provide three Lorain polo shirts, one t-shirt, two pairs of pants and a belt. The necessary items ensure students are able to attend class with regularity.

“Through the Titan Pride Uniform Program, we have an opportunity to help provide every day needs that ultimately have a tremendous impact on students’ attendance, which is critical for academic achievement,” said Vice President of the Cleveland Browns Foundation Renee Harvey.

The Browns have partnered with Lorain City School District to provide these necessities and address the underlying causes of absenteeism.

“We are forever thankful for the Cleveland Browns Foundation,” said Lorain City School District CEO David Hardy.
