FACTS: Oscar De La Hoya Foundation is donating its second annual, new, state-
of-the-art boxing equipment to gyms that serve youth in economically disadvantaged communities plagued by gang and drug violence.

Additional recipients of the foundation's boxing equipment donations this giving season include Who's Next Boxing Academy in La Puente, Calif., and The Rock Boxing Academy in Carson, Calif.
In 1995, boxing superstar Oscar De La Hoya started his namesake Foundation to help improve the quality of life for those living in disadvantaged communities. The Oscar De La Hoya Foundation supports the Oscar De La Hoya Ánimo Charter High School, the Cecilia Gonzalez De La Hoya Cancer Center and the Oscar De La Hoya Labor and Delivery Center and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (both located at White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles) as well as numerous after-school programs that help guide young people toward leading positive lives and away from the circumstances of gang violence, juvenile delinquency, and substance abuse.
