While checking out the latest models and makes of automobiles at the recent Chicago Auto Show, thousands of visitors showed their generosity in donating a total of six tons of canned goods to A Safe Haven Foundation during the Nation’s Largest Canned Food Drive at the recent Chicago Auto Show Feb. 12 to 14. A nonprofit anchor in the community, A Safe Haven is celebrating 25 years of helping end hunger and homelessness for the city’s most poverty-stricken residents.

The donations will all go directly to help feed an average of 5,000 homeless individuals, families and veterans that reside and depend on A Safe Haven Foundation annually. A Safe Haven provides its residents basic needs like food, transitional housing and holistic wrap around services to help them get back on their feet with jobs and affordable housing. The nonprofit’s pioneering and award-winning model has been recognized by leading stakeholders around the world for offering the most innovative, complete and vertically integrated approach and system that is uniquely designed to address root causes of poverty and homelessness by providing them a path to social, economic and housing opportunities to achieve sustainable self-sufficiency.

Volunteers from the Chicago White Sox and UIC and individuals helped to man the two booths at the Chicago Auto Show. The volunteers and A Safe Haven staff were instrumental in helping to greet guests and educate them about the nonprofit’s mission of eradicating homelessness and the issues surrounding that topic as well as unemployment, mental health and addiction.
