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.
Ronald McDonald House Charities
The LA Kings donated $1,000,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California to fund the Activity Center/Mess Hall for Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times. The camp, which is located in the San Jacinto Mountains and serves 1,500 campers each year, provides medically supervised, cost-free camp programs for children with cancer and their families.
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.
New to this season, the LA Kings made a $70,000 commitment to Peace Over Violence to sponsor the Youth Leadership Program, a youth summer program assisting with breaking the cycle of violence.
