Windy City native Chance the Rapper is continuing advocacy work in his hometown by partnering with Postmates for a new chartiable effort.

On Tuesday, Postmates announced it would be starting a campaign with the rapper’s SocialWorks charity. According to the delivery service’s website, it will donate $1 to Chance’s organization for every order placed through the app to one of the rapper’s favorite Chicago eateries.

“We’re teaming up with Chance The Rapper to make a positive impact on the community by raising funds for SocialWorks — an organization that empowers youths through the arts, education, and civic engagement,” the company said in a statement.

The rapper’s list of eateries includes Harold’s Chicken, Garret Popcorn Shops, LiqrBox and Royal Caribbean Jerk.

Chance, 25, also uploaded a video to Instagram revealing the partnership. He explained that the campaign will run from Jan. 29 to Feb. 1.

Postmates added, “We’ll donate $1 for every order placed from one of these places in Chance’s Fave Eats collection — up to $10,000 — to SocialWorks. Order from the collection today and we can support the youth across Chicago together.”

The 25-year-old has teamed up with other companies, including Lyft, to bring awareness and help raise money for Chicago programs.
