Yasiel Puig to Donate $50,000 to Dodgers Foundation



The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation is one step closer to reaching its goal of building 50 Dodgers Dreamfields. Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig announced that he would donate $50,000 to the foundation for their 50th dreamfield.

This foundation began its dreamfield initiative in 2003 to give children in the community a safe environment to enjoy recreational activities. They have built parks in seemingly every part of the city, with locations that include Baldwin Hills, Reseda, Pasadena and La Puente.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LAFD) has been a staple in the community since being established in 1995. They have worked with several neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles providing various services to children. Along with the Dodgers Dreamfields, LAFD also works with the Dodgers RBI program and LA Reads. Dodgers RBI gives children the resources to play baseball, while LA Reads strives to increase literacy rates in Los Angeles.

In April, he also pledged to donate $1,000 for every home run he hits this season.
