Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews and Hawks goalie Malcolm Subban once again answered the call from former Bears linebacker Sam Acho to lend a hand in the community.
This time, Toews and Subban were among donors and attendees who helped Acho buy a liquor store in Chicago's Austin neighborhood to turn into a food mart.
This is what change looks like. Just got together pro athletes from the @ChicagoBears @chicagobulls @whitesox @NHLBlackhawks @packers @Panthers and @Saints. We invited @nflcommish and @chicagosmayor. We listened to kids and learned about their dream for a better Chicago. pic.twitter.com/sQpnmnPiMj— Sam Acho (@TheSamAcho) July 7, 2020
The group — which also included Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky, Bears tackle Charles Leno Jr. and White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito, among other pro athletes — put up $500,000 to help provide the area with the much-needed supplies.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Bears GM Ryan Pace and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell were also listed among the attendees and donors.
