2016 Star of Hope Donation Drive

Donation Drive for Star of Hope

Collecting items through Monday, December 12th

Marco Specialty Steel, Inc. has donated to Star of Hope since 2006.  Last year, we thought we’d take a different approach by having a Donation Drive.  This year has been a difficult year for everyone, not just at Marco.  Let’s lift our spirits with kindness and generosity to others in need. Please consider donating items through Monday, December 12, 2016. We will deliver the donated items to their location that week.
