Just another helper for the kids.

The Oakland Raiders have a message for the Oakland Unified School District.

Just get paid, baby.

A portion of proceeds from season tickets bought by eager Raider fans between May 1 and June 30 will go towards the cash-strapped school district, the Oakland Tribune reported.

Ten percent of the price of season tickets, which start at $260 each, will go towards the local schools, according to team officials, who said they are "delighted" to help out the kids.

The Silver and Black begin both the regular season and preseason at home with games at O.Co Coliseum.

Tickets can be had at Raiders.com or by calling 1-800-Raiders, the newspaper reported.
