With all the negative publicity surrounding the Browns in 1995, Andre Rison kept his word with a $3,000 donation to the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless.
Rison said at the beginning of the season that he would donate $1,000 for every touchdown that he scored to NEOCH. As it turned out, Rison was able to get in the end zone three times for a generous $3,000 donation to NEOCH.
The money will be used to assist regular vendor's of the Homeless Grapevine in Cleveland to further their education or receive job training.
The Board of Director's of NEOCH would like to thank Rison and the Browns for their support, and a hope that this donation is the beginning of a strong relationship between NEOCH and Rison in Cleveland.
