Over in Englewood a young navy veteran is returning home with aims to help out his neighborhood. Dion Dawson, an Englewood native, returned from 5 years in the navy with a big dream, this dream came into fruition with his new nonprofit “Dion’s Chicago Dream”.

Located at West 57th street and Racine Avenue, Dion offers fresh fruit, vegetables, and water to anyone who is in need. It is just the beginning of his dream for helping the community, but it is a welcome gift for those who need it the most and for those who might go hungry without him.
