One of the largest search engines in the world is spreading some holiday cheer! Google.org decided donate to Chance The Rapper’s non-profit Social Works! According to XXL :
On Dec. 6, Google announced the grant would benefit SocialWorks during a student event at Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Paideia Academy in Chicago. Additionally, $500,000 was also granted directly to Chicago Public Schools and their computer science initiative, CS4All. The grant helps to provide programming to highlight the importance of coding and computer science for students in underrepresented school districts.
Chance made an appearance at the school’s assembly, in which the student body received new backpacks from state, a company dedicated to addressing the needs of children in critical circumstances, as well as new threads featuring the word “CODER” on them.
“The opportunity to help kids code to share their music, artwork, and distinct point of view is at the core of our mission and an experience we look forward to providing in classrooms across the city,” explains Justin Cunningham, Executive Director of SocialWorks.
“We’re honored to support SocialWorks’ mission to help underrepresented students in Chicago reach their full potential, as well as Chicago Public Schools’ efforts to turn computer science into a pathway for creative expression,” said Google.org Principal, Justin Steele.
