While sitting on top of white convertible, Chance and his team handed out some backpacks to children who watched from the parade sidelines.


Chance handed out over thirty-thousand backpacks throughout the day. One parent stated, “It means a lot to the kids, those who can’t receive things for going back to school, it helps them out a lot.”

Chance has been doing positive things to help the Chicago Public Schools and also donated one million dollars to the schools.

After the parade, Chance capped things off with a free concert.
