The Association of Industrial Real Estate Brokers (AIRE) will sponsor its 13th Annual AIRE Thanks For Giving Food Drive at its monthly luncheon Nov. 12 at the Rosewood Restaurant in Rosemont.
This year the food drive will support A Safe Haven Foundation for Women and Children. According to its mission statement, A Safe Haven helps people aspire, transform and sustain their lives from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. A Safe Haven provides the tools for each individual to overcome the root causes of homelessness through a holistic, scalable model. A Safe Haven’s visible social and economic impact unites families, stabilizes neighborhoods and creates vibrant, viable communities.
The Thanks For Giving Food Drive, chaired by Sheri Tantari, The McShane Companies, and Elise Couston, SIOR, Paine Wetzel, accepts donations of non-perishable food items and cash.
Tantari said AIRE has collected approximately $1,200 annually in addition to the bags and boxes of food.
“Year after year, no matter what the economic cycle, the members of AIRE are amazingly generous,” Tantari said. “We’ve never stumbled on this effort. We’ve always had a wonderful response and a generous donation to serve others in the community who need our assistance.”
Members and guests can register for the meeting by going to the AIRE website at www.aire-brokers.com, or by calling the management office at (630) 510-4554.
