SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Local filmmaker Deon Taylor and assistant Kings coach and former player Bobby Jackson are giving back to the community in a big way.

Jackson and Taylor are teaming up for their 7th annual charity event 500 Turkeys for 500 Families, but due to the increasing need this year, they’re doubling the donation and giving 1,000 turkeys to 1,000 families.


During last year’s event at Grant High School in Del Paso Heights, more people arrived than were expected, and Taylor and Jackson had to go out and buy additional food and gifts. Since Loaves and Fishes were still in need of donations, Taylor and Jackson decided to donate all the food to them.

“There are a lot of different crises that happened across the world. A lot of these organizations don’t get what they normally get. It’s an important time for everyone to give back any way they can,” said Taylor. Several local businesses have donated food as well.

We need your support to make this day a success and you can help us today by donating any of the following:

  • Cash Donations: $150 can feed 12 families this Christmas
  • Food Donations: Turkeys, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce or stuffing mix, etc.
