You can help our neighbors in the Bahamas donating at Marlins Park!
The Marlins informed the following in a statement earlier today:
The Miami Marlins and the Miami Marlins Foundation are joining the community’s efforts in assisting our neighbors in the Bahamas who were impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Marlins Park will serve as a donation site during the upcoming homestand, September 6-12. Drop-off locations will be on the East and West Plaza at Marlins Park, beginning two hours prior to first pitch. Come and help donating with us!
The Miami Marlins Foundation will donate all 50/50 Raffle proceeds – and match those funds raised – from the upcoming homestand to the relief efforts after Dorian did a lot of damage in the Bahamas.
In addition, fans attending games this homestand can help donating $1 at any Marlins Park concession and round up their purchases at the Marlins Park retail stores. Donations by fans will be matched by the Miami Marlins Foundation.
Needed items include water, canned goods, can openers, mosquito spray, sunscreen, diapers, baby formula, first aid items, flashlights, batteries, and small generators.
The Marlins thank partners Pepsi, Sedano’s Supermarkets, W.B. Mason, and Goya for their pledged donations to the Marlins organization’s efforts.
