Dodgers Announced As Finalists For the 2020 Sports Humanitarian of the Year

ESPN announced today that the Los Angeles Dodgers were named as one of the finalists for Sports Humanitarian of the Year award. They were named alongside the Denver Broncos, Sacramento Kings, and New York City Football Club. 

The honor was given in recognition of the work of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, and the work done within the community. This is the sixth annual Sports Humanitarian Award and is sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company in 2020. The award is meant to be a celebration of the impact made by teams and athletes who are using sports to make a difference within their cities and communities. The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation aims at tackling issues in education, homelessness, and social justice across LA. 

For Angelenos with limited access to education, sports, and healthcare, we strive to be a champion that increases the quality of life and confidence of the people we serve. We are honored by this recognition and the ability to use the historic Dodger brand and the power of sport to run and fund proven programs that impact the lives of those who need it most. -Nichol Whiteman, CEO of Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation
Looking at any sort of social media posting from the Dodgers shows what kind of efforts the players and the foundation make on a daily basis. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dodgers players have been incredibly active in making sure that Angelenos are taken care of.
