Adrian Gonzalez was known in San Diego for his good works in the community. That will continue in Boston.

Gonzalez will donate $500 for every home run he hits to select Habitat for Humanity affiliates serving eastern Massachusetts. The donation will be matched by Eastern Bank.

The charitable program will be highlighted during the fifth inning of every Red Sox telecast on NESN. Gonzalez will make personal appearances for the bank and will be featured in advertisements and promotions related to the charitable program.

This from the press release:

“In San Diego and now in Boston, Adrian and Betsy Gonzalez have demonstrated a remarkable commitment to raising money for nonprofits, volunteering, and giving back to the community,” said Richard E. Holbrook, Eastern’s chairman and CEO. “Those actions mesh perfectly with Eastern Bank, where giving back to the communities we serve is a responsibility that we take very seriously.”

“Betsy and I very much look forward to being part of Red Sox Nation,” Gonzalez said. “That means not only helping the Sox win. It also means partnering with great organizations such as Eastern Bank and giving back to the community in a way that is meaningful and lasting.”
