As part of the NHL All-Star Game's return to Los Angeles, the LA Kings and the Kings Care Foundation are hosting three volunteer events for fans to participate in to give back to the community in the week leading up to All-Star Weekend.
"Reinvesting in the community is an extremely important part of the LA Kings culture. From our owners, to players, staff and fans -- there is a real sense of loyalty to the city we play for," says Amanda Ellis, Manager of Community Relations and the Kings Care Foundation.
The events range from building an interactive and edible garden, multiple beach cleanups, and a home playhouse and framing build day.
"Our fans are quick to support the team's efforts in the community. Because of their generosity -- through volunteering, donating, supporting events, and other contributions -- we are able to make a substantial impact in Los Angeles. The Forever50 initiative has been years in the making, all made possible by the incredible support of our fans and donors," adds Ellis.
