As part of the Kings' efforts to honor the incredible social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women, while also campaigning for greater progress towards gender equality, the team presented a check for $10,000 to the Downtown Women's Center.

Serving more than 4,000 women annually, the Downtown Women's Center has provided housing, workforce development and supportive services to women experiencing homelessness across Los Angeles County since 1978.
