Will Bynum pays electric bill to keep two Chicago women’s shelters open

Wendell Hutson of DNAinfo Chicago:

After he pays the electric bills Tuesday for two women’s shelters, Detroit Pistons point guard and Chicago native Will Bynum will host a Thanksgiving dinner for the shelters’ residents.

Clara Kirk, founder of the West Englewood United Organization, which runs Clara’s Place and Clara’s House at 1650 W. 63rd St., said Bynum will pay nearly $3,000 owed to ComEd.

Bynum, who once lived in Englewood and attended Crane High School, said his efforts go far beyond money.

“This is bigger than just paying an electric bill and giving dinners to those in need, it is about me seeing a need and doing my part to help," Bynum said. "I want the homeless and battered women who are living in the shelter to know there is someone who cares, that the situation can and will get better."

Never change, Will. Never change.
