Students will also receive Hi-Chew gift bags, Dodger hats and a pair of tickets to a Dodger game.

Dodger J.P. Howell will serve as Playworks "Coach for a Day" at Eastman Elementary School. Howell will lead third, fourth and fifth-grade Playworks students through their recess games, including four square, wall ball, kickball, basketball and a tag game. This marks LADF's second year of partnership with Playworks Southern California Junior Coach Leadership Program and the second year LADF has provided a $25,000 grant to Playworks Southern California.
