“Historic Charity Group Backs LA Dodgers’ Loney for Clemente Award” – Christian Post

Aaron Leichman of the Christian Post wrote a great article on Union Rescue Mission’s effort to support LA Dodgers’ James Loney for the MLB Roberto Clemente Award.  

Union Rescue Mission, which has dedicated itself to serving the poor and homeless since it was established in 1891, is rallying behind LA Dodgers nominee James Loney, who has been active with Christian nonprofit organization.

“I met James Loney during his rookie year, on Christian Day at Dodger Stadium, and he was very friendly and outgoing as he had his picture taken with those of us from KKLA Radio that day,” recalled the Rev. Andrew (Andy) J. Bales, CEO of Union Rescue Mission, in his corporate blog.

“He and his wonderful teammate, Andre Ethier, have taken an active interest in URM,” he continued. “Andre has even grilled hot dogs on the roof with us, and James Loney has a wonderful outreach with young people in Los Angeles through Loney’s Lounge.”

If James Loney wins the award he will donate $30,000 to Union Rescue Mission.  Click here to go and vote for James Joney and help URM receive $30,000.
