Fans Donate Antonio Brown Jerseys For a Good Cause

Second donation drive set for tomorrow morning.

Fed up Steeler fans put their frustrations towards a good cause this morning, donating Antonio Brown jerseys to St. Vincent de Paul's .

The star wide receiver demanded a trade from the Steelers earlier this week, and seemed to say goodbye to Pittsburgh on social media. But rather than burn or simply toss out their AB gear, fans turned out to Totin's Diner in the North Hills, where The Fan Morning Show (93.7 The Fan FM) was broadcasting live.

It was a great way to spark something positive out of what's been mostly negative offseason for the Black & Gold. Totin's told us one customer even donated $5,000 to St. Vincent de Paul's! The ministry says it supports 100,000 neighbors in the Pittsburgh area in need with clothing, furniture, housing, utility assistance, food, medical care, and transportation. We reached out to ask how many jerseys and shirts they collected today, and we'll let you know when they get back to us with a grand total!

And don't worry if you weren't able to make it out to Totin's this morning, The Fan Morning Show is hosting another collection drive tomorrow morning at Jack's Bar Pittsburgh in the South Side. Any fan who donates a jersey or shirt will get a gift certificate for $10 off a new shirt at Yinzers in the 'Burgh, plus you can enter to win a signed JuJu Smith-Schuster jersey!

It's beautiful! A family's donation of land allows a Pittsburgh non-profit to provide healthy, fresh, organic produce to people who come to their food pantry.
