Chicago — Yesterday, Mars Chocolate North America presented a check for $5,000 to the Chicago-area Habitat for Humanity at the Sweets & Snacks Expo.

According to Tim Quinn, vice-president of trade development for Mars and chairman of the 2013 NCA Sweets & Snacks Expo, the gift shows appreciation to the city of Chicago for hosting the Expo and to honor its tradition and history in the confectionery industry.

The donation is an extension of a yearlong, cause-related partnership in which Mars Chocolate has pledged $500,000 in donations to the nonprofit organization to help fund construction of homes.
