CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's Chance the Rapper scored big again in his quest to help Chicago Public Schools. He got a huge assist coming from the Chicago Bulls.

Chance announced the team is donating $1 million to CPS. He made the announcement on the South Side at Robeson High School.

The Bulls' Michael Reinsdorf presented him with the check. The money will go toward arts and enrichment programs and school supplies, starting first with the schools in greatest need.

"As a parent and proud CPS graduate I'm committed to helping Chicago's children have quality learning experiences and a quality learning space. Youth education is key focus area for the Chicago Bulls and the team's longstanding relationship with CPS," Chance said.

So far, 22 schools have received help. Some just learned today they were getting money. Chance said he feels a need to do this.

"It is my jobs as, just who I am, to bring light and attention to public school funding and how it affects my hometown. We all individually play roles in the betterment of the kids of Chicago," he said.

Earlier this month chance donated his own million dollars to support schools.
