Rapper Snoop Dogg Reaches Out To Chicago Youth

 

CHICAGO - Rap artist Snoop Dogg is reaching out to Chicago's youth through football.

The rapper-actor is planning to visit the city today to unveil plans for a Chicago chapter of his L.A.-based Snoop Youth Football League.  

He'll also be hosting a free clinic for boys.  Over 200 area boys ages 8 to 14  from Chicago Housing Authority families are expected to attend.  The social activist will also distribute book bags and school supplies to 600 children at a Windows of Opportunity Inc. Back to School event.

The league, in it's 5th year, has about 2,500 players on 12 teams.  Chicago will be the first city outside of Los Angeles to get league teams.  Plans to start fielding teams are set for next year.
