Former President Barack Obama hosted a community event at the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago on Wednesday — and made some big announcements about the future plans for his center’s campus.
The 44th president announced he and his wife, Michelle Obama, will be donating $2 million to summer jobs programs in Chicago.
“One of the things that we will be starting this year is Michelle and I, personally, are going to donate $2 million to our summer jobs programs here in the community, so that right away young people can get to work, and we can start providing opportunities to all of them,” Obama said.
