LA Kings Partners With Children’s Hospital Los Angeles To Support National Blood Donation Month
Blood Drive Collected More than 55 Units of Blood Which Could Help Up to 110 Patients
To celebrate National Blood Donor Month, AEG’s LA Kings partnered with Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) to host four blood drives that collected over 55 units of blood. The drives were held outside CHLA and Crypto.com Arena, and donors who participated in the drives received two tickets to a future LA Kings game of their choice.
"With national blood supplies critically low, the LA Kings are honored to partner with CHLA on these blood drives and raise awareness about the situation,” said Amanda Apel, Senior Director of Community Relations, LA Kings. “One donation of blood can save up to three lives and every donation helps. We are proud to do our part to help to support those in need.”
