Vikings' Kendricks Donates $20,000 to The Sheridan Story

May 12, 2017 06:05 PM

Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks presented a $20,000 check to The Sheridan Story for the weekend food programs it operates at schools across the Twin Cities.

The funds were raised by Kendricks' "Sacks for Kids" campaign, which saw fans pledge money for each sack the Vikings had last season.


"I love the cause," Kendricks told KSTP on Friday. "It was an easy fit. I found an opportunity where I could help with what I do on the football field and have an impact in these kids' lives."

Kendricks was joined by his brother, Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks, at Westview Elementary School in Apple Valley.

"I've seen him involved since I was young," Mychal said. "As we've been separated from college, I've seen him mature as a man."

The Kendricks brothers also helped distribute food backpacks to the kids after the check presentation.
