Former Bears RB Matt Forte is hosting a backpack giveaway in Chicago this weekend

A former Chicago Bear is hosting a back-to-school backpack giveaway this weekend.

Matt Forte’s “What’s Your Forte? Foundation” has a “Back to School Drip Academy.” They are giving away backpacks and doing other activities like bounce houses and art projects.

The retired Bear spoke with FOX 32 Chicago about the vision for his foundation.


“That’s the main goal, is to really love people and transform people from the inside out, but then elevate the family unit because that’s the heart of the community,” Forte said.

The Drip Academy will take place on Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Progressive Baptist Church at 36th and Wentworth, right across from White Sox Guaranteed Rate Field.

No need to register.
