Dodger alumni “Sweet” Lou Johnson and Bobby Castillo will be on hand to help distribute a complimentary turkey, fixings and reusable canvas bags to 600 pre-selected families.
The Dodgers have partnered with Ralphs and Food 4 Less, Los Angeles City Council member Ed P. Reyes, Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti, California State Assemblymember Kevin De León, the Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council (GEPENC), the Echo Park Improvement Association (EPIA) and the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park (CCSEP) for the giveaway.
