When & Where
David Ortiz Children's Fund
The David Ortiz Children's Fund was founded by David in 2006 after meeting with children recieving life-saving heart surgery. David went to put a smile on their faces and left with a passion to help the children, and those like them, live full lives. Today, the DOCF helps provide pediatric critical care to those who cannot afford it, throughout New England and in David's native Dominican Republic.
