“The Kings are fortunate to not only have the best fans in the world but also the most caring and this year we again want to give our generous fans the opportunity to support the program of their choice through the Kings Care Foundation,” said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille. “During the month of December, pledge a donation to your charity of choice – at lakings.com/seasonofgiving
-- and the Kings Care Foundation will match your donation. It’s that simple.”

. The club will be posting ways and events our staff is helping the community and we encourage you to do the same. With your help, needy children and families all over Los Angeles will feel the love from our LA Kings family. Join us in celebrating the holidays by giving others a reason to celebrate!
The LA Kings Season of Giving initiative encourages Kings staff, alumni, partners, family members and fans to give back and spread some holiday cheer to those less fortunate in the LA community throughout the month of December.
The LA Kings offices (300 North Continental Blvd, Suite 500, El Segundo) will also serve as the North Pole for the month, accepting canned food and toy donations each day.
