Sacramento Kings and Golden 1 Credit Union donate $20,000 to local school districts

The Kings are supporting children in need of meals during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Sacramento Kings continue to support their community as the organization will donate $20,000 to local school districts, the team announced Thursday.

The donation will be split in half and go directly to the Sacramento Unified School District and the Stockton Unified School District. Golden 1 Credit Union is also a part of the donation.

The money primarily focuses on children receiving free meals during the summer as many students and families have suffered setbacks due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

Multiple locations throughout the cities of Sacramento and Stockton will continue to provide daily meals for children ages 18 and under.

“Families and students across the region are facing many uncertainties during this time and food should not be one of them,” Sacramento Kings President of Business Operations John Rinehart said in the press release Thursday. “As the effects of COVID-19 place a greater strain on these resources, the Kings are proud to do our part to help Sacramento City Unified School District and Stockton Unified School District in assisting our fellow community members.”

The donation is part of the Kings "In This Together" initiative, which was launched in late March as a response to help the community from the challenges brought upon by the pandemic.

I was so nervous about the lack of comments I had to get a drink of water with one hand.

This is nice and all, but I want folks to realize that the Sac City School District has nearly 50,000 students, most of whom are on a free or reduced meal program. $10K helps, but doesn’t go as far as you think. With 10% cuts coming to all school districts, there is going to be a need for a lot more community support.

I’ll add that Sac City Unified is one of about 4 school districts in the greater Sacramento area with a higher rate of low income / under privileged youth needing any and all support this community can give them.
