MLB Donating $250,000 To Aid Louisiana
Major League Baseball is the latest to lend a helping hand to the state of Louisiana, and the victims of the recent floods.
Major League Baseball, along with the Major League Baseball Players Association, announced on Tuesday that they are contributing $250,000 to the flood relief process.
Three charities will each receive a portion of the $250,000 donation, with the American Red Cross receiving a $125,000 contribution, while the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and High Socks for Hope will each receive a $62,500 contribution.
The Baton Rouge Area Foundation is forwarding donations to the Louisiana Flood Relief Fund. It was set up by former LSU players now in the major leagues, including Mikie Mahtook, Alex Bregman, Louis Coleman, Kevin Gausman, Will Harris, DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Nola, Anthony Ranaudo and Ryan Schimpf.
High Socks For Hope is a nonprofit foundation created and operated by Chicago White Sox pitcher David Robertson and his wife, Erin, to assist natural disaster victims nationwide.
