The relationship with the LA Kings has helped the Children's Hospital Los Angeles Department of Pathology's Transfusion Medicine Program (Blood Bank) meet 94% of their blood product needs - higher than any other children's hospital in the United States. After completing the foundation's initial five-year, $500,000 commitment to the Blood Donor Center, the team proudly renewed and increased its financial support of the Hospital to $1,000,000 over five years.
With this gift, the hospital will study side effects that may develop as a result of receiving blood transfusions and continue research on Brain Tumors, Hydrocephalus and Functional Neurosurgery.
In 2015, Kings Care Foundation began supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California with a $1,000,000 donation to fund the Activity Center/Mess Hall for Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times. The team has since pledged an additional $1,000,000 in conjunction with the Ontario Reign towards capital improvements to Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House.
Following the announcement that Kings Care Foundation pledged $1,000,000 to the YMCA, the LA Kings, Delta Air Lines and YMCA of Metro Los Angeles launched a new LA Kings Ball Hockey Program in partnership with Blue Shield of California.
The LA Kings Ball Hockey Program, which introduces the fundamentals of hockey through clinics, classes and league play, is available to boys and girls, ages 5-14.
Serving as 1 of 12 interactive exhibits at Discovery Cube LA, the LA Kings "Science of Hockey" teaches children the math and science behind the game. The permanent exhibit will live in the San Fernando Valley children's museum until 2025.
