Super Bowl 44 Champion Usama Young Returns Home to Help Nourish Residents in Need
Cleveland Browns Free Safety to Volunteer at the Capital Area Food Bank
WASHINGTON, June 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Super Bowl 44 Champion and Cleveland Browns Free Safety Usama Young will volunteer at the Capital Area Food Bank's Northeast facility to help pack and sort bags for the organization's Weekend Bag Program, a service that provides 1000 children weekly with bags of food when they do not have access to school meals. Young returns to his hometown for his fourth annual Stay Focused Football & Cheer Camp, which is a part of the Usama Young Youth Foundation, and includes a series of events for families and youth. Young's foundation is based in the Washington metro, Greater Cleveland Ohio and North Carolina areas; and offers interactive programs to children from single-parent homes and underserved communities. Prince George's County Public School students will also volunteer at the food bank.
The Capital Area Food Bank, the metro area's hub for food sourcing and distribution in the hunger relief movement, has experienced a 25 percent increase in demand for food assistance over the past four years. In the District alone, one in two children is at risk of hunger.
