Our currently project is to raise funds to restore Veterans Memorial Park, a baseball field in Commerce California, near East Los Angeles. This very heavily used field was built in 1969, and is badly in need of upgrades.
The Veterans Memorial Park Stadium’s Approximate Annual Usage:
- (880) Youth Athletes: JV games, varsity games and practices, travel team games, Calvary Chapel Downey games, Garfield High games, youth league baseball practice and games, soccer practice and flag football practice
- (1,900) Youth for activities and events such: annual Easter Egg Hunt, pre-school graduation, Commerce to College Event
- (300) Adult Athletes: Dodger Town West 55+ League games and Slow Pitch League games
- (3,200) Spectators for all sports and events
As you can see, the field is heavily used, yet is in desperate need of renovation. There are no other alternatives in this traditionally underserved area of Los Angeles. Together, with your donation we would like to help with the improvements that this deteriorating field needs so it can continue servicing thousands youths in the future. Your donation is 100% tax deductible, please visit our donations page for more information.
