Cleveland Browns Seek Aim’s Support for Massive ‘Give Back Day’
Posted on August 25th, 2017
Four rental trucks donated by Aim Leasing recently enabled the Cleveland Browns to deliver dozens of new book shelves, high-top tables and rocking chairs to Cleveland schools and teen centers as part of “Browns Give Back,” a team volunteer day.
The day-long June 6 event included assembly and delivery of the goods by more than 120 employees of the NFL team and celebrations at the last two of the five synthetic football fields donated by the Browns at Cleveland Metropolitan School District high schools.
“We were glad to donate these rental vehicles to the Browns to help them provide a nice lift to these local schools and teen centers,” said MATT SVANCARA, executive vice president at Aim Leasing.
The Aim trucks also delivered clothing and shoes used in Cleveland’s “Get 2 School, You Can Make It” initiative, which supports better attendance by eliminating clothing concerns that often keep students away from the classroom.
Browns corporate relations coordinator Cory Gilman thanked Matt for arranging the use of the Aim vehicles.
“The trucks were great,” he wrote in an email. “I think we used up every inch of space!”
The trucks’ Aim logo decals were prominent in photos and videos posted on social media and the Browns website.
