The Vegas Golden Knights, the Foley Family Charitable Trust, and the NHL announced Tuesday a joint donation of $300,000 to aid the victims of Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas and the first responders who attended the scene.

It was also announced that the league, teams, and players will honor victims at this week's season-opening games under the banner "Vegas United." In addition, pledge drives and other fundraisers will provide further assistance to the city of Las Vegas.

On Monday, the Golden Knights announced "events, in-arena recognition, player involvement, and awareness initiatives" to aid the relief efforts.
