Baseball professionals raise $ 1 million through California Strong to help victims of forest fires, Borderline footage


It was a memorable Friday for Kimberly Ledoux, who has experienced more difficulties in recent months than many others in their lives.

The Malibu resident lost his home in Fire Woolsey.

But on this day, there is much to be grateful for, as it is receiving financial assistance from a local nonprofit organization.

"One of the main reasons I'm here is to meet them, I'm really touched by the fact that they're doing it … shake hands," Ledoux said.

About 100 local families have been selected to receive funds from California Strong.

The non-profit organization was started by Major League Baseball players, Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and Mike Moustakas. LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff is also involved in the organization.

They are providing financial help to the victims of the recent forest fires and the filming of Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.

Through charitable events and donations they were able to raise more than $ 1 million.

"It simply helps them get back on their feet," Yelich said.

Players have grown in the area and have been evacuated during the fire. Now they are paying him to help their community come back stronger than ever.

Over $ 1 million will be distributed to 150 families, including victims of Camp Fire in northern California.
