Yogi Ferrell is donating hundreds of meals and servings of ice cream to the Sacramento Children’s Home

The Sacramento Kings organization and players continue to demonstrate their generosity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Yogi Ferrell, the lovable backup point guard for the Sacramento Kings, is donating hundreds of meals and servings of ice cream to foster children currently staying in the Sacramento Children's Home. Ferrell's support is not only helping local youth in need of a hand up during the COVID-19 pandemic; he's also assisting the larger Sacramento community by ordering the food from local eateries. El Novillero, Happy Takeout, Pangea Bier Café, and Roma's' Pizzeria will supply the meals to the Sacramento Children's Home, while the Haagen-Dazs located in the Downtown Commons will be providing the sweet treats for those in need.

Ferrell's contributions aren't his first act of philanthropy involving the Sacramento Children's Home, as he hosted a holiday party for the city's youth back in December, and he's also partnered with the Kings to support redesigns throughout the facility, including enhancements to the gym and living areas. Yogi's generosity is just the latest in a string of efforts by the Sacramento Kings organizations and players to lend a hand during these unprecedented times. Harrison Barnes, Bogdan Bogdanovic, De'Aaron Fox, Richaun Holmes, and Cory Joseph have all chipped in and donated thousands of meals to different organizations that support several communities, while the team's foundation has donated $250,000 to provide food services for the disadvantaged, along with 100,000 masks to frontline workers and 5,000 pounds of perishable foods to the Sacramento Food Bank and the Sacramento County Office of Education.

The Sacramento Kings may not always find success on the hardwood, but they never fail to support the community around them, a much more important initiative than putting a ball in a basket.

Awesome work, Yogi!

(Also, it will be nice if/when the day comes that we no longer have to provide the €œon court product€ disclaimer with this team.)

True, but this beats discussing negative off the court issues.

It is both praiseworthy and sad that the US is receiving such assistance from individuals and companies to plug holes the government can’t/won’t fill.
(Just an outside observation, not trying to spark a political debate. )

Kudos to Yogi and all the NBA players who’ve utilized their privilege to support the underprivileged, those in need and generally being good character guys.
On another note, the team was recently outed for receiving $500,000 a month for use of the Old Barn as an overflow medical facility for Covid, and the news isn’t being received well at all. I hope the team is using a majority of this revenue in similar fashion, as the details weren’t released from the team’s side of things, because, obviously, capitalizing off a pandemic isn’t going to go over well in this community. I get wanting to make money off of investments, but A) $500,000 a month!? and B) billionaire owners who can afford to contribute during a pandemic. Maybe I’m being a little naive but it seems there could have been a better solution than half a million a month at tax payers’ expense…

There was a whole article about this, guy.

The Sacramento Kings never claimed Natomas Arena was a donation

Ah, exactly what I was hoping for by mentioning it here – to get more information and understanding from a non-biased (ok, slightly biased…lol) readership. Thanks, guy…

Much respect to one of the lowest earning vets on the payroll.
