Sharing It Day
at the Merchandise Mart, South Lobby



Sharing It Day

The Merchandise Mart, the Mayor's Office of Special Events and Jewel-Osco are excited to present Sharing It Day, Chicago's largest one-day, indoor food drive benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Sharing It Day highlights the giving spirit that surrounds the holiday season and is held just two days before Thanksgiving.

Share in the holiday spirit and help the food Depository feed thousands in Chicagoland with a cash or nonperishable donation. The food and funds collected throughout the day help the Food Depository feed thousands of Chicago's hungry each year.
