BALTIMORE — With the crime in Baltimore, many kids don't know where to go or how to spend their time, so Ravens Hall of Famer Ed Reed is working to change that.

He joined Tony the Tiger on Friday for a special surprise at Kipp Ujima Village Academy. A big donation for the school's sports programs as well as build a baseball field for the school's nearly undefeated co-ed baseball team.

"this is something that is really near and dear because i know how much kids need access to do something outside what's going on in their neighborhoods, the crime and everything that's going on," Ed Reed said.

The donation is from Kellogg's Frosted Flakes' Mission Tiger. It was created in August and works to give middle school kids access to sports. So far, the campaign has impacted more than 150,000 kids.
