Last year, the LA Galaxy partnered with United Way of Greater Los Angeles to support donations for the Southern California Disaster Relief Fund. The LA Galaxy also participated in a KCBS and KCAL telethon last year, with LA Galaxy defender Daniel Steres and various LA Galaxy staff attending to raise funds, which helped raise over $1M in relief donations for fire victims. The Galaxy also visited various LA County Fire and Sheriff stations to deliver food and refreshments to law enforcement and fire first responders, visiting Gardena, Compton and multiple Carson stations in support of relief efforts.
