TEAM PROGRAMS
Reading and literacy is a central focus of giving at Maloof Sports & Entertainment. The Kings host Reading Timeouts throughout the season in an effort to encourage kids to read and better their education and donate Kings Reading and Learning Centers to local schools, public libraries and community centers in need.
The Sacramento Kings, along with presenting partners Wells Fargo and U.S. Army, support the donation of thousands of tickets to special groups and children from underserved communities through the “Kings for the Community” program. The program was developed by Kings players and personnel as a way to give back to the community.
The Jr. Kings program provides an opportunity for teams and groups of kids to attend a Sacramento Kings game and receive a number of other exciting benefits! The Jr. Kings program is a great way for youngsters in the Sacramento region to unite and interact with the Kings.
