The Los Angeles Dodgers may be prepping for their opening day this week, but that hasn't distracted them from their humanitarian efforts. The baseball organization, along with owner/ chairman Mark Walter, have announced a whopping donation of $2 million dollars to the Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico. According to Dodgers Insider, the money will be used to assist in the rebuilding of 60,000 new homes.
“This donation will provide housing assistance for many families, but there’s a long way to go and many people that still need our help,” said owner Mark Walter.
“It’s been more than six months since Hurricane Maria’s devastating effects on Puerto Rico and with so much work still to be done, the Dodgers want to do our part to help with the island’s rebuilding and recovery efforts.”
Dodger player and Puerto Rico native, Kiké Hernández, and fiancée Mariana Vicente have personally taken to raising $225,000 through fundraisers and t-shirt sales.
