Eat Chance the Rapper Cookies And You Too Can Raise Money For Students

(AllHipHop News) A bakery in Chicago is doing their part to support Chance the Rapper and his goal of raising money for the Chicago Public School system.

Last week, Chance proclaimed he was donating $1 million to the CPS, after a tense meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner.

The CPS is facing a $215 billion budget shortfall after Governor Rauner vetoed a bill which earmarked $215 million in state pension funding for the school system.

Chance stepped in an attempt to crack the gridlock and made the announcement of a $1 million donation to help local students, last week.

And he’s also shelled out another $90,000 to help 10 different schools within the CPS System as of last week.

The Alliance Bakery, which is based in Wicker Park, Chicago, was so motivated by Chance that they decided to produce a line of Chance the Rapper cookies featuring his silhouette.

The bakery also made a run of cookies replicating the rapper’s signature “3” baseball cap.

“I love the idea. I’m a product of Chicago Public Schools and my son is in a public school and, yeah, they need help,” said Peter Rios, Alliance Bakery owner.

According to Rios, one dollar from the sale of each cookie will be donated to Chance’s non-profit organization, SocialWorks.

The bakery will also match the first $5,000 to create a total of $10,000 to be sent to the Chicago Public School system.
