The Los Angeles Dodgers, Dodgers Foundation and iHeartMedia Los Angeles have joined together to raise money from fans, players and partners to support vulnerable populations who are experiencing homelessness, food insecurity, lack of basic needs and significant anxiety during this uncertain time.
Initial grants will be directed to the Los Angeles Food Bank, My Friend's Place, Mayor's Fund for Los Angeles, Brotherhood Crusade, Baby2Baby and the Library Foundation of Los Angeles. Additional funds raised throughout April will be directed to similar organizations with substantial need. The balance of funds will support the costs associated with in-kind donations and other relief efforts.
Initial in-kind donations will include food, hygiene necessities, clothing and promotional items distributed at grab and go locations with LAUSD, the Dream Center and homeless shelters in partnership with City of LA Recreation and Parks. Additional donations will be provided to healthcare workers at UCLA Health.
