Washington Nationals infielder Steve Lombardozzi and his father, former major leaguer Steve Lombardozzi Sr., are doing their part to help the relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Lombardozzi, a Columbia, Md., native, and his dad are collecting donations at several locations on Saturday to donate them to relief and recovery programs.

They’ll be taking all the donations to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside, N.J., on Tuesday, November 20. 


Here’s where the Lombardozzi’s will be collecting and when:

Nationals Clubhouse Team Stores – Tysons Corner Center

1961 Chain Bridge Rd. Suite E-5U, Tysons Corner, VA

Saturday, Nov. 17: 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

(Anyone who donates will receive 15 percent off their full-price purchase at any team stores as well.)
