More than 5,000 children in need will benefit from back-to-school hygiene kits and staples packed by the Los Angeles Dodgers

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Dodgers players turned out in South Los Angeles on Friday to pack 175,000 toiletries and back-to-school essentials for children in need.

“Anytime we can do something like this to help the kids, we’re happy to do it,” Dodgers pitcher David Price said.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation has partnered with Baby2Baby, a non-profit organization that helps children in need, and set up various packing stations for volunteers at the Baby2Baby headquarters.

“It’s going to get into the hands of care programs, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, underserved schools, hospitals, and whoever needs it most will get it there immediately,” said Norah Weinstein, co-CEO of Baby2Baby.

Price and Dodgers players Clayton Kershaw, Max Muncy and Will Smith attended the event.

This is part of the Dodgers’ All-Star Legacy’s $6 million effort to give back to community projects in Los Angeles.

Volunteers lined up to pack things like toothbrushes and soap for the hygiene kits and school supplies and backpacks for the grooming kits.

A volunteer told Eyewitness News about the impact of such events near his home.

“It is very important to me. As a child I was a beneficiary of programs like this to ensure I had school supplies when I was young and so I want to pass this on to other families,” volunteer Iman Farrior said.

The kits packed on Friday go immediately to children in need.
