The Los Angeles Kings were promoting a new initiative with the environment as a focus at St. Anthony Parish School on Wednesday. The Kings have joined forces with Blue Shield of California and the Grades of Green to teach children about the importance of being eco-friendly, healthy, socially responsible, inclusive and knowledgeable.
The Kings were represented at the school by left winger Kyle Clifford, the team mascot Bailey and the Kings Ice Crew. The students were able to learn through the digital platform called G.O.A.L.S. about how to properly sort waste and to be overall healthy. G.O.A.L.S. stands for Green solutions, Open outlooks, Active bodies, Local leaders and Sharp minds.

The Blue Shield of California is a non-profit health plan provider based in San Francisco, that helps serve over four million people in the state of California. Grades of Green promotes a trash-free lunch challenge to Los Angeles school students.
Clifford meanwhile has one assist in three games for the Kings so far this season. However, he has not played since Oct. 11 because of an upper-body injury. The Kings meanwhile play host to the Tampa Bay Lightning at Staples Center on Thursday. For tickets, please click here.
