The deadly wildfires in Northern California have killed 42 people thus far and have left many recovering from deadly damage.

A 9 year old named Loren wrote a touching letter to the Oakland Athletics detailing the loss of his baseball memorabilia due to the fires. He lost 17 jerseys, 10 hats, game-used baseballs, baseballs signed by current and former Oakland A’s players, plus countless baseball cards.

After seeing the letter, the White Sox jumped in to action.

The White Sox donated a bag, bobblehead, sunglasses, t-shirt, hat, plush toy doll, water bottle, baseball cards, and autographed baseballs.
