West Downey Little League gets $5K donation from New York Life


DOWNEY — West Downey Little League announced Wednesday that it received a $5,000 Community Impact Grant from New York Life in support of their Little League program which supports over 400 players throughout the 2019 seasons within the City of Downey.

“West Downey Little League is grateful for the support of New York Life and specifically Hector Sosa, an agent at the New York Life Fullerton General Office, who has donated time and effort at the league over the last year,” said WDLL. “Hector was instrumental in helping the league receive this grant as it will help them keep operating the league while keeping registration costs low for the participants.”

The Community Impact Grant program awards grants of up to $25,000 to local nonprofit organizations, which are championed by New York Life agents and employees. Since the program’s inception in 2008, nearly 600 grants totaling more than $7 million have been awarded to nonprofits across the country.
