Gold Country Media has announced that The Sacramento Kings will act as the newest community partner in the local canned food drive to benefit The Westfield Galleria employees. The Placer County Food Bank will provide food donation bins at entrances to the Arco Arena for the 7 p.m. Nov. 6 and Nov. 10 games. As part of the community wide effort to assist the families affected by the Roseville Galleria fire, donations of non-perishable food items will be collected and later sorted and assembled into boxes for distribution to displaced workers at a community event on Nov. 13. Homebuilder KB Home will donate $5 for every canned good collected by the area participants, up to $7,500, to the food bank. Gold Country Media is working with other builders, businesses and real estate professionals to coordinate this effort.
