- Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) are leading an online donation effort now through May 19 and a collection of items at Dodger Stadium Thursday, May 15 in support of the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission. The Mission experienced a devastating fire earlier this month. Damage sustained included the destruction of the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission’s emergency shelter, vehicle fleet, clothing warehouse and food pantry which were vital in aiding those of need in the San Fernando Valley. The Dodgers and LADF invite fans to donate monetary gifts now by visiting www.dodgers.com/ladf. All donations received this week will go directly to the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission. Fans are also invited to drive through Dodger Stadium Thursday, May 15 from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. in Lot 1 to drop off donations.
