2020 Toys for Tots Charity Raffle Update
I hope that you and your loved ones are all healthy and staying safe! Our Browns are 5-3 and that is still something to celebrate at this point in the season, compared to the last few years. Of course, not a lot of things are normal in 2020.
With the economic impact of the pandemic, Toys for Tots needs us more than ever this year. Even though we are not meeting in-person to watch our Browns, we can still do some good as a club to help make Christmas special for low-income children.
Please consider participating in our fundraiser for Toys for Tots. The proceeds will be split between Toys for Tots in DC and Cleveland. There are three ways to donate:
First Name: Washington DC Area
Last Name: Browns Backers
- PayPal: Email is WDCABBC@gmail.com
- Check: If you would like to send a personal check, please email us for the mailing address
We are suggesting $20, but any amount is appreciated. Thanks in advance for your support and Go Browns!!
