San Francisco 49ers defensive end Arik Armstead is lending a helping hand to his hometown.
Armstead announced he is running a Twitter contest to support Sacramento, which he pointed out is made up of over 60 percent small businesses and many local restaurants that are particularly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
He asked Twitter users to use the hashtag #EAT91SIX as part of a tweet featuring a picture of food from the restaurants to be entered to win prizes such as 49ers tickets and autographed memorabilia:

In order to support local, I’ll be rewarding people who support Sacramento restaurants. Tweet a pic of your food (tag or mention restaurant) using the #EAT91SIX to be entered to win 49ers tix, autographed memorabilia + more (I’ll be selecting random winners starting 4/1) (2/2) https://t.co/aFnSQC2Ya4
Armstead also revealed United Sac, which is helping the Sacramento community respond to the pandemic, is partnering with him on this project.
