The Obamas Announce $2M Donation To Chicago Summer Jobs Program
Forever my POTUS and FLOTUS….
Former President Barack Obama announced he and Michelle Obama will be donating $2 million to the summer jobs program in Chicago.
Here’s the scoop via The Hill:
“One of the things that we’ll be starting this year is Michelle and I are personally going to donate $2 million to our summer jobs programs here in the community,” he said at the South Shore Cultural Center.
“[It’s] so that right away young people can get to work and we can start providing opportunities to all of them.”
The former president used the event to unveil plans for a 200,000-square-foot campus on Chicago’s South Side that will house the Obama Presidential Center. Obama said the center will be used to “train the next generation of leadership, the Michelle Robinsons of today and the Barack Obamas of today.”
