ConServe employees, along with the company’s “Matching Gift Program,” donated a combined $8,540 through its “Jeans for Charity” program in July to Honor Flight Rochester and Honor Flight Buffalo.
Honor Flight transports WWII and Korean War veterans, as well as veterans from any era who suffer from a terminal illness, to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials. Their goal is to take every veteran who otherwise would not or could not go, and who wants to fly.
“On behalf of Honor Flight Rochester we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to ConServe and its employees for this generous donation. This will fund more veterans to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C. at no cost to the veteran. These heroes gave their service to defend our freedoms and we are forever grateful,” said Honor Flight Rochester President Rich Stewart.
“ConServe is dedicated to improving the human condition,” said Mark Davitt, President of ConServe. “We are proud to honor our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country and will continue to support our active military members as well.”
ConServe also supports veterans through participation in Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide initiative of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. ConServe participates in local Hiring Our Heroes job fairs; to date more than 24,000 veterans and military spouses have obtained jobs through this initiative. ConServe is one of more than 1,700 businesses who have pledged to hire 448,000 heroes as part of the Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign.

About Honor Flight Buffalo
Honor Flight Buffalo was co-founded by Jo-Anne Wylie and Lisa A. Wylie, as well as Charles Dunkle, when they realized the organization’s national office “The Honor Flight Network” had greater than 300 World War II veterans in the Buffalo area waiting to make this journey to see their memorial.
In 2009, Honor Flight Buffalo became an “official” Hub of the Honor Flight Network serving Erie, Niagara and surrounding counties area veterans. Honor Flight Buffalo was formed in honor and in memory of the Wylie sisters’ Dad S/SGT Robert P. Wylie, U.S. Army Air Corps, World War II Veteran and Charter Member of the building of the World War Memorial who never had the privilege of seeing his Memorial.
