ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Employees of Continental Service Group, Inc., d/b/a ConServe, recently spent the day at the Nathaniel Rochester Community School #3, one of Rochester’s City Schools, presenting the concepts of financial literacy, entrepreneurialism and workforce readiness to students in grades one through six. Delivered through grade level-appropriate lesson plans created by Junior Achievement (JA), the ConServe team embraced the opportunity to educate our community’s youth with information that will empower them to succeed in the future.

“The ConServe team is committed every day to providing financial solutions and education to adults in need, and they truly understand the importance of fostering these same positive financial habits in youth” said Patricia Leva, President of Junior Achievement of Central Upstate New York. She continues “JA is proud to partner with ConServe employees to bring their expertise and inspiration to students in the Rochester City School District, helping break the cycle of poverty and improve the quality of lives.  We are equally delighted to be a recipient of the Jeans for Charity program which will allow JA to bring this message of hope and empowerment to even more students in our community! “     

 “ConServe endorses the concept of people taking control of their financial destiny – we believe in Fostering Financial Freedom®.  As our Jeans for Charity recipient for June, we are helping to instill these concepts and skills in the young adults of our communities while they are still in school.  In this way, we are investing in their future and providing them with the tools they will need to achieve their long-term goals” adds Mark Davitt, President of ConServe.

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, which has inspired countless replications throughout the region, is just one of the ways in which ConServe supports varied and diverse community agencies. To date the program has donated over $650 thousand to local community organizations.
