On a beautiful afternoon (and really, I can’t emphasize that enough) at the top of the park at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers and the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF), in partnership with Ralphs/Food 4 Less, hosted the 10th annual Community Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway at Dodger Stadium — part of the Dodgers/LADF 2014 Season of Giving.
Dodger Alumni League members Al “The Bull” Ferrara, “Sweet” Lou Johnson, Matt Luke and Dennis Powell helped distribute a complimentary turkey, fixings and reusable canvas bags to 1,200 pre-selected families and nonprofit community organizations, who will in turn distribute them to Los Angeles area families in need. Levy Restaurants provided complimentary Dodger Dogs for these families and organizations.
The Dodgers also partnered with the offices of Senator Kevin de Leon, Councilmember Gil Cedillo, Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez on the event.
