Dodgers News: LA Lends A Helping Hand After Country Hits Morbid Milestone

The US has always been one to reach new milestones. Yesterday, however, the US reached the unenviable milestone of over 100,000 deaths from the Covid-19 virus.

In the midst of sadness, the Dodgers decided to lend a helping hand.

Partnered with the Dodgers Foundation and the Salvation Army, the Dodgers held a food drive at Dodger Stadium. Sanitation items, which have become a hot commodity since the quarantine order was issued, were also handed out.

The food drive comes at a time when over 40 million people in the US have enrolled in unemployment, providing alleviation for many suffering from financial setbacks.

This is the recent edition of the Dodgers’ helping efforts. In April, the organization paid the grocery bill for a store full of customers in Watts. Outside of Los Angeles, Mookie Betts made his contribution mark during these quarantine times, buying pizza and groceries for a store in his native Nashville Tennessee.

After contributing to eight straight seasons of league-leading attendance, Dodger fans have always shown their love for the team. The Dodgers, in turn, have shown time and time again that they are more than willing to return the love.
