LA County Fire Department

“On Wednesday, February 13, 2019, the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) Trust presented a $50,000 grant award to the Los Angeles County Fire Department Foundation. The check presentation took place at Cecil R. Gehr Training Center at the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) Headquarters.

LACoFD Fire Chief Daryl Osby and Foundation President Jim Kross accepted the grant from Hall of Fame outfielder Dave Winfield. The grant will support health and fitness initiatives by providing physical fitness equipment for the Department’s firefighters.

“Baseball players recognize the selfless bravery by the Los Angeles County firefighters and all those who protect our communities across the country every day,” said Winfield.

Thank you to the MLBPA for its generous grant!”
