--One of the most charitable players in Kings franchise history to donate turkey dinners benefitting 50 local Spanish-speaking families--


Who: Sacramento Kings veteran forward Francisco Garcia, Slamson, representatives from Wells Fargo and 50 Spanish-speaking families.

What: Francisco Garcia will be present to donate and distribute traditional holiday meals benefitting 50 Spanish-speaking families in the Sacramento area. Kings partner Wells Fargo will join Garcia by donating a $100 gift card to each family in attendance.

The Sacramento Kings 11th annual Season of Giving continues the organization’s commitment to making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Festivities continued on Tuesday as DeMarcus Cousins teamed with Wells Fargo and Walmart to treat 50 local children to a holiday shopping spree. Last Saturday, Jimmer Fredette, Thomas Robinson, Isaiah Thomas and Jason Thompson visited patients at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Sacramento. Players and volunteers delivered gifts and spent time with kids and their families. Season of Giving events tipped-off on November 19 at Trinity Life Center in Sacramento, where Tyreke Evans, Isaiah Thomas, John Salmons, Francisco Garcia, Chuck Hayes, DeMarcus Cousins and Travis Outlaw served more than 500 Thanksgiving meals to underserved families.

Garcia’s “Holiday in a Box” is the fourth of six total events in December associated with the team’s Season of Giving efforts. Visit Kings.com/community for more information.
