The 2010 food drive will extend through February 17, 18 and 19, when food can be donated in the main hall of the 2010 Chicago Auto Show.
A Safe Haven Foundation recently got involved in assisting the refugees of the terrible earthquake in Haiti. More than 240 Haitian evacuees have been served by A Safe Haven Foundation since the earthquake in addition to the daily service to Chicago's homeless.
“It is an incredible opportunity to once again partner with the American icon automaker Chrysler Corporation to raise awareness and support for those experiencing homelessness from the earthquake in Haiti and for American’s that have fallen victims of the economy as they embark on their path to self-sufficiency through an integrated, community-based ‘continuum of care’ here at A Safe Haven,” said Neli Vazquez-Rowland, President of A Safe Haven Foundation, in a release.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Chicago Auto Show food drive, and Chrysler is its third annual automotive sponsor. As said, all the proceeds of the food drive go to feeding Haiti earthquake victims, residents at A Safe Haven Foundation and North Lawndale citizens via A Safe Haven Foundation's Community Food Pantry.
