All-Star Dodger outfielder Andre Ethier hosted a holiday shopping trip for 10 pre-selected Los Angeles children. Kids from the Expo Center, Five Acres, Pacific Lodge Youth Center and Central City Action Committee organizations received $500 to spend at Best Buy, courtesy of Ethier, and other gifts.
This event was the third holiday shopping trip Ethier has sponsored, as he has treated children from A Better L.A. and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services to similar excursions in the past.
Just this year, Ethier has given his time to the community by volunteering at Union Rescue Mission downtown, visiting the 35th annual City of Hope Celebration of Life Bone Marrow Transplant Reunion and speaking at Dodgers Youth Baseball Camp twice.
