“This donation will provide housing assistance for many families, but there’s a long way to go and many people that still need our help.”

The Los Angeles Dodgers stated, they’ll be donating $2 million on Tuesday to Habitat for Humanity of Puerto Rico to help fund construction of homes on the hurricane-ravaged island.

Dodger utility player Kike Hernandez, a native of Puerto Rico, and his fiancee Mariana Vicente added $225,000 they collected in a pair of fundraising efforts to the gift.

“It’s been more than six months since Hurricane Maria’s devastating effects on Puerto Rico and with so much work still to be done. The Dodgers want to do our part to help with the island’s rebuilding and recovery efforts,” said Dodger owner/Chairman Mark Walter.

“Kike and Mariana have been such strong advocates for Puerto Rico and we want to join their families and loved ones in helping repair the community and work towards a return to normalcy.”

Donations are expected to be used for the rehabilitation of homes in five counties and building new homes in the city of Guayama, according to the team.

“Puerto Rico is such a special place, and I’d like to thank Mark and the entire Dodger organization for their support and help in rebuilding our homeland following these natural disasters,” Hernandez said. “This donation will provide housing assistance for many families, but there’s a long way to go and many people that still need our help.”
