Richaun Holmes, Harrison Barnes, Bogdan Bogdanovic and De’Aaron Fox are teaming up to support local restaurants and donate more than 1,000 meals to families and children in need.

They will donate the meals throughout the Sacramento community in April.

Led by Holmes, families in need were identified with the help of regional non-profit organizations including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento.

“Since coming to Sacramento I have experienced firsthand how our community is truly one big family, so my teammates and I are committed to looking out for those in need and lending a helping hand,” said Holmes. “I am very thankful for my teammates in joining me to help bring smiles to others and get through this time together.”

The players’ donations were part of the team’s “In This Together” effort to help support the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Sacramento Kings Foundation recently announced a $250,000 donation to area community organizations providing food services, essential supplies and other resources.

The Kings also donated 100,000 medical-grade masks to state and city health agencies, where they would be distributed to hospitals with a shortage of supplies.
