GENESEO, N.Y. – Coast Professional, Inc. (Coast) presented a check for $12,130.00 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Rochester at Coast’s Geneseo office today. Coast’s donation is a result of Coast’s dress down for charity program in which employees donate $20 or more for the option to wear jeans and business casual attire for the month. This donation includes the employee contributions from Coast’s Geneseo, NY and Henrietta, NY offices and the company match of up to $1,000 per office.
The employees of Coast selected RMHC to be the recipient of the charity dress down program for the months of January and February as a result of the impact that RMHC has in the local area. The employees vote bimonthly for the charity that will receive the donations raised through the dress down program for the upcoming period.
All proceeds from the event will benefit local families and help support RMHC’s mission to provide a home away from home for families that need to be near their children who are receiving health care in Rochester-area hospitals.
“Coast’s dress down program was created to give back to the community through monthly donations and further establish our company culture of philanthropy,” stated Roxanne Baker, President of Coast. She continued, “Our staff have been the driving force behind this program, which continues to exceed our expectations. Coast is proud that we are able create a positive impact within the local area and establish an appreciation of charity throughout our organization. On behalf of Coast and our employees, we are proud to give this donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester.”
