Browns help build new playground

On Tuesday, Oct. 19, members of the Cleveland Browns and other volunteers came together to help build a new playground for Karamu House children providing them a safe place to play in the community.

  •  
    The playground was assembled at the Karamu House in Cleveland.
  •  
    The Cleveland Browns' Blake Costanzo helped out in making the playground.
  •  
    It was a huge playground.
  •  
    Fun monkey bars too.
  •  
    Volunteers helped paint a mural on the side of the Karamu House.

    At this point it was not steady, but cement and dirt would do the trick once it was put in place.

    Blake Costanza helped out all day.
