On Tuesday night, 27,759 Oakland Athletics fans packed the Oakland Coliseum in a reverse boycott to send owner John Fisher and team president Dave Kaval a message that the fans are still in Oakland.

And the team is capitalizing on that outpouring of support by doing good in their neighborhood.

With their largest attendance of the season, the team is planning to donate all ticket revenue, over $800,000, from Tuesday’s game to the Alameda County Community Food Bank and the Oakland Public Education Fund.

In a press release from the team, the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) distributes millions of healthy meals every year and “is on the forefront of new approaches to ending hunger and poverty. ACCFB distributes enough food to serve 60,000 people a day. ACCFB’s hunger-relief efforts include innovative food programs; CalFresh (food stamps) outreach and assistance; policy and advocacy; healthcare and nutrition initiatives; and child and student wellness.”

The second nonprofit included is the Oakland Public Education Fund, which “leads the development and investment of community resources in Oakland public schools so that all students can learn, grow, and thrive.”
