CAMPAIGN: Caring for Families & Kids


At first glance, you might have thought the game happening at Sunset Country Club on a recent afternoon was just an ordinary outing for businesspeople and their friends. But beneath the sunny autumn skies and beyond the post-game cocktail hour, something much more important was happening. September 23rd and 24th marked Our Little Haven’s Annual Golf Tournament, a critical fundraiser for supporting the organization and the heart-healing work it does for abused, neglected, and traumatized area children. By way of programs like mental health services and a unique therapeutic preschool, Our Little Haven has been taking care of psychologically wounded kids for 20 years. And Marcone Supply has been supporting OLH since its inception. Sponsorship of the Golf Tournament alone generated nearly $100,000, and Marcone president Jim Souers serves on the Our Little Haven board of directors, ensuring that the company’s relationship with the organization is a close one.


That emphasis on relationships is a keystone in Marcone’s operations. Since our founding in 1932 Marcone Supply has been family-owned, and in that time the company has become as much of a corporate institution as a force for good in St. Louis. At Marcone there’s always been a focus on giving back to the community that supports our business. Over the last 10 years, we've partnered with nearly 50 non-profit organizations. And while those partnerships have benefitted everything from animal rescue work to cancer research, a lot of Marcone’s charity is centered on groups helping children and families. It’s those kinds of relationships that further underscore their longheld commitment to valuing and expanding the “Marcone Family”—company-wide and community-wide.
