The Browns continue to be active players in the community.

Every week, the Cleveland Browns are doing something in the community, and it’s a topic that I’ve really wanted to highlight more here at Dawgs By Nature in between all the X’s and O’s of gameday.

On Tuesday, three members of the Browns -- wide receivers Ricardo Louis and Rashard Higgins and safety Ibraheim Campbell — joined local members of the Cleveland Police and Fire Departments to surprise kids at their youth flag football practice outside Michael Zone Recreation Center. Below are various photos from the visit:

Talking to Browns.com, Campbell stressed the importance of showing youth that despite all the protests taking place in the NFL and the country in general, there is still a sense of unity among athletes, owners, police, etc. “The message we’re trying to get across is that we’re in it to unify the country and make it better a place better place for youth and the people that are currently in it,” said Campbell.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what the Browns do for the community; just a small sample of what else has happened this week include handing out healthy snacks, a $10,000 donation to a middle school, and a field dedication at John Marshall High School.
