Rochester, N.Y. – The employees of Continental Service Group, Inc., d.b.a. ConServe, in conjunction with the company’s “Matching Gift Program” made a generous contribution in November to support the efforts of the Hillside Special Santa holiday giving program for the Hillside Family of Agencies and the Veterans Outreach Center Inc.

“For more than 30 years, thousands of children and families have enjoyed happier holidays thanks to Hillside Special Santa and the generosity of individuals and businesses in our community,” said Thomas Hildebrandt, President of Hillside Children’s Foundation. “ConServe is a valued business in the community and we deeply appreciate their assistance in making this season brighter for so many youth in need.”

About Hillside Special Santas
Hillside Special Santa is the holiday giving program for Hillside Family of Agencies. This program benefits youth and families who receive residential, community-based, day treatment and/or customized services throughout New York State and Prince George’s County, Maryland. Many families of these youth find themselves in need of assistance during the holiday season. As a result of the continuous dedication and generosity of the communities in which our services are offered, the Hillside Special Santa program is able to collaborate with staff and families to provide 3 gifts to each of the youth receiving services, as well as any of their siblings or children residing in that home.
