Marcus Corporation exceeds volunteer hour goal
In celebration of its 75th anniversary, the Marcus Corporation launched its Moving Forward- Giving Back associate volunteer campaign earlier this year.
The campaign encourages all 5,900 associates to volunteer at least 7.5 hours in their community to collectively achieve more than 75,000 volunteer hours as an entire company by the anniversary date of Nov. 1, 2010. The company exceeded that goal earlier this week, by sorting food at Feed America together. 
The volunteer campaign includes all associates at Marcus Theatres, Marcus Hotels and Resorts and the company’s corporate office.
“Not only has The Marcus Corp. delivered valuable guest experiences for 75 years, but it has been committed to giving back to the communities where our associates live and work. The ‘Moving Forward – Giving Back’ volunteer campaign supports this important company tradition,” said Gregory Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corp. “The purpose of our volunteer campaign is to touch all our communities with one voice and to make a lasting impact as a community partner and successful employer.”
