The Los Angeles Dodger third baseman, Justin Turner, will have a special day in LA. January 22nd will be Justin Turner Day.
The LA City Council declared “Justin Turner Day” in tribute to Turner’s charity work and impact on the community. This was the Dodgers’ 16th annual community service week. In the annual community service week, they participate in, doing different types of activities and events. The LA City Council are awarding this day to Justin Turner also due to his charity work, including the Justin Turner Foundation.
According to givestep.com, the Justin Turner Foundation was founded in 2016, it is a nonprofit foundation that is dedicated to help children in need, battling life-altering illnesses and diseases, as well as various youth baseball organizations, and helping homeless veterans.
Turner has done great things on and off the field for the City of Los Angeles. From walk-off home runs to helping out the community. Hopefully this another successful year for the Justin Turner Foundation, Justin Turner on and off the field, possibly winning a World Series this season, third time could be the charm. Nonetheless, Turner is doing great work for the City of Los Angeles and I am glad it’s being recognized.
