Murtha Cullina Annual Giving Tree Supports Hartford Mercy Housing and Shelter Corp.
January 2, 2014
Hartford, CT (January 2, 2014) – For several years, the staff and attorneys of Murtha Cullina’s Hartford office have come together to provide holiday support for the Mercy Housing and Shelter Corporation located in Hartford.
Each year, during the month of December, Mercy Housing brings Murtha Cullina a holiday wish list. The firm then takes that list and decorates a Christmas tree with gift tags filled with the holiday wishes of those children and families supported by Mercy Housing.
“It is such a joy to support a local organization over the holidays,” said Audrey Gehring, Human Resources Assistant at Murtha Cullina. “Our hope is to provide these families with a little holiday cheer, and to make their Christmas wishes a reality.”
