2012 Chicago Auto Show Food Drive

A Safe Haven was again the beneficiary of a food drive sponsored by the Chicago Auto Show, Humana, Chrysler, Be! Products, Alan Josephsen Co. Inc. and the Chicago Sun-Times. Setting a new collection benchmark, more than 10 tons of canned goods were collected by the organizations in exchange for a discount ticket to the show.

"We are grateful to our sponsors for the opportunity to put on our food drive for the homeless," said Neli Vazquez-Rowland, named Chicagoan of the Year last year by Chicago Magazine. "Chicagoans are able to see the world's most innovative car models by donating to America's most innovative community development model, based right here in Chicago.

"This is an exciting privilege to participate in A Safe Haven's Food Drive at the Chicago Auto Show, which I've been attending since I was a little boy," said A Safe Haven resident Wilson Dawes, who volunteered at the booth last year. "A Safe Haven has been like a miracle in my life. Thanks to the Chicago Auto Show, so many people will learn about A Safe Haven's wonderful work."

"Over the past 16 years the Chicago Auto Show has collected over 300,000 pounds of food for A Safe Haven, and we believe that the food drive is an important element of the work we do each year in putting on the Auto Show in this great community," said Steve Foley Jr., chairman of the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.
