Max Scherzer and his wife, Erica, have announced the formation of a new organization called 'Nats for Masks' that will help provide masks to underprivileged and at-risk populations in DMV area.
I cannot begin to describe how excited I am for this! Max and I will match all money raised and are emptying out our personal collection of memorabilia to support covid relief efforts in the DMV. Please join us this season and visit, https://t.co/ucgxKgBwak for more info. https://t.co/SSb0IDXLJU— Erica Scherzer (@emaysway) August 6, 2020
As part of the initiative, the Scherzers will auction off some of their personal collection of memorabilia to support COVID-19 relief efforts in the DMV. Some of the auction items available included autographed game-used jerseys, caps, and even Max’s 2019 All-Star Game nameplate.
Giving back to the community is nothing new to the Scherzer family. As animal lovers, back in 2017 during the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Scherzer’s rallied to cover adoption fees for all animals at the Washington-based Humane Rescue Alliance in order to make space for animals brought in from Houston.
Erica is also on the Board of Directors of the Humane Rescue Alliance, and Max has also contributed in the past in a PSA to raise awareness for the shelter.
As if we needed another reason to adore the Scherzer family and what they do for our community, just add this to the list.
