Sharing It Day at the Merchandise Mart 2008; Eli’s Cheesecake Delighted to Support the Greater Chicago Food Depository

One of our favorite days of the year is Sharing It Day at the
Merchandise Mart hosted by Chris Kennedy, President of Merchandise Mart
Properties.

We partnered with Jewel Osco. Potbelly’s and Argo Tea to support
food donations by Merchandise Mart tenants and friends to the Greater Chicago
Food Depository. In this year of turmoil in the economy, there is over a 30%
additional need for food for the hungry, many of whom have never visited a food
pantry before.

We support the Greater Chicago Food Depository thoughout the
year and use Sharing It Day as a celebration of our participation in the
Magnificent Mile Lights Festival to raise funds and food donations for the
GCFD.
