Major League Baseball faced more uncertainty Monday when it was announced the original Opening Day delay of two weeks had been pushed back

The season is now being delayed until at least May due to the recent coronavirus pandemic.

Still, local athletes and teams have been doing their part by giving back to the communities.

The A's announced Monday they will donate $100,000 the Alameda County Community Food Bank.

“This is an unprecedented time in our community," A’s president Dave Kaval said in a release. "As we navigate this pandemic, it is crucial that we come together and help those who need us most. We are grateful for the work of the Alameda County Community Food Bank, its staff, and the volunteers who are working around the clock to address food availability issues and hunger during this difficult time.”

Respect.

This is part of a joint effort to support those going through the difficult time caused by community shutdowns.

Steph and Ayesha Curry not only provided 1 million meals to Oakland student for at least the next three weeks while schools are closed, but Warriors ownership, players and coaches created a $1 million fund to lend a hand to Chase Center hourly employees whose jobs are on hold as the NBA suspends play.

 

The Kings also donated prepared and perishable food to the Sacramento County Office of Education and the Sacramento Food Bank to assist those impacted by COVID-19.

It's a scary time right now, but nice to see those come together and try to help.
