By PIX11 News

Grammy winning recording-artist and Oscar winning actor, Common, took a break from his busy schedule to surprise the students of PS 111 in New York City.

Partnering with Burlington Stores and Adopt-A-Classroom, Common and his mom – a retired school teacher — presented a $10,000 check to the school. The money will be used to buy sorely needed school supplies for the students.

According to Adopt-A-Classroom, teachers spend on average over $700 out of their own pockets just to supply their students with what they need per year.
