In keeping with the holiday spirit, Chance The Rapper is raising funds to help provide coats for the homeless. In many cities, winter can be a dire time for homeless residents. This initiative aims to keep Chicago's homeless residents warm and dry during some of the darkest days of winter.
Chancelor Bennett, also known as Chance The Rapper, recently teamed up with 'The Empowerment Plan' to launch an initiative called 'Warmest Winter.' The project aims to provide 1,000 ultra-insulated coats to Chicago residents who are unable to find shelter during the winter months. The coats are provided by The Empowerment Plan, which is a non-profit organization that employs homeless women as seamstresses. These women work to create durable winter jackets that are water resistant, self-heating and can even double as sleeping bags.
Bennett's effort to provide coats for the homeless draws attention to the need to provide these residents with extra support during the winter months.
