ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- In June the team of employees from Continental Service Group, Inc., d/b/a: ConServe, directed the donations from their Jeans For Charity program to local organizations aimed at helping people cope with difficult life-changing and life-saving challenges. As June’s Jeans For Charity recipients, the Ronald McDonald House Charities and Upstate New York Transplant Services (Unyts) that support the Buffalo and Rochester areas, provide vital services to those in need. Whether it’s keeping families together when children are undergoing critical hospital care or fulfilling the blood needs of Western New York, both organizations help to ease the burden of coping with what can sometimes be overwhelming circumstances.
Through the company's Jeans For Charity program, in which ConServe employees can elect to participate in monthly charitable donations in exchange for the option of wearing jeans to work, employees are provided with the opportunity to "give back" to their local communities by donating to a diverse group of organizations throughout the year. Additionally, the funds raised by the employees' generosity is supplemented by the organization's "Matching Gift Program." This ongoing initiative symbolizes ConServe's commitment to its corporate mission of helping to improve the human condition.
Krystle Ellis, Director of Communication and Events for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester (RMHCR) states, “this gift means a great deal to our families. RMHCR is supported 100% through community donations. ConServe’s donation will allow families to remain strong and together during the most critical time of their life.” Greg Eastmer, Senior Partner Relations Associate at Unyts said, “we are so grateful to have ConServe as a partner in saving lives through donation and transplantation, and we are so appreciative for their generous donation. Thanks to their support, Unyts will be able to continue to further our education and awareness efforts across the community, and ultimately save more lives.”

About ConServe’s Jeans For Charity Program
ConServe’s Jeans For Charity initiative began in 2008 when the team’s employees had an idea to launch a program that would provide a way for the company’s mission of “improving the human condition” to coordinate with the organization’s commitment of giving back to their community. ConServe employees are given the opportunity to participate in monthly charitable donations, benefitting a wide range of recipients, in exchange for having the option of dressing down and wearing jeans to work for the entire month. The funds raised by the employees’ generosity are supplemented by the organization’s Matching Gift Program - symbolizing ConServe’s commitment to good corporate citizenship. This ongoing initiative is just one of the ways in which ConServe supports varied and diverse community agencies. To date, the program has donated over $945,947 to local community organizations.
