Chance the Rapper surprises Chicago students, announces $1M donation from Jewel

CHICAGO — Chicago’s very own Chance the Rapper surprised students today at a high school in the South Austin neighborhood.

He hosted an assembly at Michele Clark High School.

Chance was there to announce a $1 million donation from Jewel-Osco to his New Chance: Arts & Literature Fund to benefit all CPS students.

His Social Works charity has now raised more than $3 million, so far, for Chicago students.

Don’t forget — Chance will be here at WGN on Friday, Dec. 8 from 5-10 a.m. for our 15th annual Toy Drive. All of the new, unwrapped toys you donate will go Social Works.
