December Cheers To Charity: Justin Turner Foundation

Dugout Mugs is proud to announce the Justin Turner Foundation as our Cheers to Charity recipient for the month of December. Started by Los Angeles Dodgers star Justin Turner and his wife Kourtney, the organization's mission is, "to support homeless veterans, children (and their families) battling life-altering illnesses and diseases and various youth baseball organizations."

The contributions of the JTF have made a huge impact on The Dream Center in Los Angeles as well. As a result, they have provided housing for 26 male veterans, and helped launch the female Veterans programs, which helps 18 female veterans with their housing needs. But their work in the community doesn't stop there.

Justin Turner, Kourtney, and the foundation can be regarded as the area version of Mr. and Mrs. Clause. Since the organization has started, they've given over 70,000 toys and 14,000 bicycles to area children during the holidays! 

At Dugout Mugs, we celebrate and serve the heroes of the baseball community and we do that by creating super fun gifts that bring people closer to the game. But we also do it through this initiative called Cheers To Charity, where we select one to two heroes in the baseball community and brotherhood that are doing good things in the world.

“Some are still playing, some are done playing, and on to the next chapter and we support that because that’s what it’s all about,” said Dugout Mugs CEO Kris Dehnert. “The baseball community supports us unbelievably and we try to do the same thing.”

In addition to our initial donation of $1000, we are taking a considerable amount of every sale purchased through the Justin Turner Foundation collection and giving it straight to the foundation.

Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with Justin to learn more about the foundation and more on his baseball journey!
