Rochester, N.Y. – July 8, 2015 – ConServe employees supported their local communities in the month of June by donating $11, 920 to assist the efforts of Unyts: Western New York’s only organ, eye, tissue and community blood center. Through the company’s Jeans for Charity program, and reinforced by the company’s corresponding matching gift contribution, ConServe helped Unyts carry out its mission of enhancing and saving lives through transplantations and donations while maintaining respect for those who give the Gift of Life.
On behalf of Unyts, Mark J. Simon, President and CEO offers: “I would like to express our appreciation to the employees of ConServe for their generous donation. The charge before us is vast, and in order to continue to register donors, educate the public, and ultimately save and enhance lives we need strong support throughout the community. ConServe is indicative of that support, and for that, you have our sincerest thanks.”
