Barack And Michelle Donating $2 Million To Chicago

The former FLOTUS and POTUS are giving back to their hometown in a major way.

During a recent stop to Chicago’s Southside, President Obama told a crowd that he and First Lady Michelle will be personally donating $2 million to summer jobs programs in Chicago.

“One of the things that we will be starting this year is Michelle and I, personally, are going to donate $2 million to our summer jobs programs here in the community, so that right away young people can get to work, and we can start providing opportunities to all of them,” said.

He also added that it will be particularly beneficial for at-risk young people looking for summer work and youth looking for apprenticeships.

The job creation will be part of the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago’s Jackson Park. The center is estimated to create 200-300 jobs along with 1,400-1,500 jobs in the construction phase and another 2,000 in the overall economic development of the area.

Shoutout to FLOTUS and POTUS for making a difference.
