On December 3, 2009, The Marston Group, PLC and employees shared in the spirit of the holiday season by shopping for underprivileged children selected from the local Salvation Army’s Angel Tree. The Junior League of Memphis provided the list of children to be placed on the Angel Tree. Employees paired up and were given $100 from the firm and the entire morning to go shop from the provided "wish lists." Following the outing, the lobby was filled with toys, bikes, clothing and practical items. The merchandise was donated to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, which relies on the selfless giving and support of the community to bring joy and happiness to those less fortunate during the holiday season.
