LORAIN — The Cleveland Browns will be giving 1,500 students in Lorain School a uniform for the upcoming school year.

According to a news release Tuesday, the Browns Give Back program, dedicated to improving education and youth football in the greater Cleveland area, will provide students with “Titan Pride Packages.”

These packages are part of the Titan Pride Apparel Equity Program, which has a goal of providing a set of uniforms to every student by the beginning of the next school year.

The packages, from local uniform supplier School Belles, include three polo shirts with the Lorain Titans shield and sword logo, two pairs of pants, a belt and one Titan Pride T-shirt.

Each package is $56 plus $5 for shipping in youth sizes and $60.50 plus $5 in shipping for adult sizes. They can be purchased at SchoolBelles.com.

“We are humbled to receive this level of support from the Browns organization,” District CEO David Hardy said in the release. “It is clear that Dee and Jimmy Haslam not only care about athletics, but the importance of education as well. The excitement they have created for our community and our school district is remarkable. And because of their support, we are seeing more and more supporters, locally and nationally, who are finding ways to support our district’s transformation. There is a path toward success and we are clearly on it.”

The release said students in kindergarten through ninth grade were eligible for the program from the Cleveland Browns but did not indicated how families can take advantage of the program.

A call placed to district spokesman Eric Bonzar about how to get the free uniforms and why students in 10th, 11th and 12th grade were excluded went unreturned.
