UPDATE: The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation announced the donation of an additional $500,000 to immediately assist in helping those most vulnerable during the current national emergency, bringing the franchise’s current total to more than $1 million.

“The needs in our community continue to grow, particularly in the healthcare industry and we feel it’s important to continue to give back to those heroes,” said D-backs Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick. “We can’t help but be inspired by those who are sacrificing so much right now to keep us all safe and we want to continue to inspire others during these unprecedented times.”

The Foundation’s initial donation of $550,000 last week was spread among numerous non-profit organizations that focus on emergency food supply and distribution as well as support for children of working healthcare professionals. This current donation will address that growing need in addition to benefitting those in the medical/healthcare fields.
