The Merchandise Mart in Chicago is the nation’s largest commercial building with over 4 million square foot of space and over 3.5 million visitors annually to its showrooms, offices and retail space. It is our pleasure to support the Merchandise Mart in “Sharing It Day” when it tenants and friends give food to support the mission of the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

Merchandise Mart Properties President, Chris Kennedy, and Eli’s Marc Schulman celebrate the success of Sharing It Day with the famed Radio City Rockettes in town for a series of performances at the Rosemont Theatre.

Eli’s Brian Craven and Marc Schulman get ready to give out Eli’s Cheesecake Slices to all food donors to the Sharing It Food Drive. Eli’s teamed up with Potbellys, which gave out certificates for free sandwiches, to insure that all donors were well thanked for their support.

Eli’s also brought “Sharing It” to the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival on Saturday with its tent at Lights Festival Lane. Enough donations were received to give the needy over 10,000 meals this holiday season.
