There’s nothing like showing your hometown love, and that’s exactly what Derrick Rose has been doing since entering the NBA as a Chicago Bull. Derrick Rose has voluntarily paid funeral expenses in Chicago, became the face of Chicago’s favorite pizza, Giordano’s, joined forces with Joakim Noah and his Noah’s Arc Foundation for the #ChicagoStandUp campaign and now we have learned that Derrick Rose has donated $1 million to Chicago After School Matters Program. Wow! That’s definitely one generous donation to support our youth and hopefully keep them out of harm’s way. Salute to Derrick for continuing to use his position & money for good.
Here’s more about the program:
“After School Matters program is a non-profit organization that offers Chicago high school teens innovative out-of-school activities through Science, Sports, Tech, Words, and the nationally recognized Gallery programs.” To learn more about After School Matters and how to get involved, visit their website at www.afterschoolmatter.org.
