Ogunjobi donates $100G for kids’ meals
CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns’ defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi is donating 100,000 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to help school children who might otherwise go hungry during the coronavirus pandemic.
Ogunjobi said in a posting on Twitter that his donation is intended for kids who typically rely on schools to provide some of their meals.
“Many of these kids, due to the school closings, are no longer getting the meals they depend on from day to day,” Ogunjobi said.
“No impact is too big or small. I encourage you to join me as well as many others as we help those in our time of need.”
Ogunjobi has spent three seasons with the Browns, who drafted him in the third round in 2017.
Ogunjobi’s donation came one day after Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and his wife, Emily, pledged $50,000 to the food bank.
On Friday, Mayfield said he’s donating to Meals on Wheels Norman to help senior citizens in Norman, Oklahoma. Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy as the Sooners quarterback in 2017.
