Browns’ Jarvis Landry hosts 2nd annual Thanksgiving food drive

News

PARMA, Ohio (WJW) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry and the Jarvis Landry Building Winners Foundation kicked off the second annual Jarvis Landry Thanksgiving Food Drive Tuesday afternoon.

During the pop-up, drive-thru meal distribution, the organization will hand out over 1,000 Thanksgiving meals to local families in need from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. at Parma Senior High School on West 54th Street.

He said Thanksgiving is a special time for him since his birthday, Nov. 28, usually falls on or around the holiday.

“Seeing where we can leave an impact, seeing where we can make a difference,” he said about what JLBWF means to him. “Holidays are the opportunity to do something special and giving back to the community means a lot.”

Last year, Landry helped provide meals for more than 300 families in Cleveland Heights for the organization’s first Thanksgiving food drive.

JLBWF, launched in June 2020, is a nonprofit dedicated to positively impacting the lives of children and families facing socioeconomic disparities and/or chronic health conditions.
