A new color scheme of green and white will brighten up A Safe Haven's Auto Show "Drive for the Homeless" this year. In celebration of a new look, and to help stock the shelter's food pantry, patrons who bring three canned goods or non-perishable food items to donate will gain admission to the Chicago Auto Show for just $7, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday, Feb. 17.

Volunteers at the booth will offer free wristbands and participation in a raffle for donors. T-shirts with the new logo will be for sale.

“Our new identity reflects A Safe Haven’s growth and success in helping people experiencing homelessness aspire, transform, and sustain real change. A Safe Haven is committed to providing holistic services that ‘break the cycle,’” noted Neli Vazquez-Rowland, A Safe Haven Foundation president.

The new logo was created thanks to the volunteerism of graphic artist Hilary Ford.

"I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such a vital organization, and look forward to seeing A Safe Haven continue to grow and succeed with the help of their new logo," said Ford.

Here is A Safe Haven's invitation:

Help us celebrate by bringing 3 canned goods to A Safe Haven's booth at the Auto Show. Get $7 admission (36% off) Wednesday through Friday, February 15-17, 10 AM-10PM. You also help families, veterans, and others experiencing homelessness become self-sufficient with pride and purpose. Any non-perishable food items are welcome. Thanks to our sponsors Humana, Chrysler, and Be! Products, and our print media sponsor, the Chicago Sun-Times.

Donors can get free A Safe Haven wristbands, participate in a raffle, and buy shirts with our new logo (see below) - while supplies last! Stop by to greet our awesome volunteers! All proceeds go directly to help the cause.
