ConServe's Jeans for Charity Program Makes the Holiday Cheerful for Those Facing Challenges

Employees Support the Open Door Mission, the House of Mercy and the Buffalo City Mission

Rochester, N.Y. – The employees of Continental Service Group, Inc., d.b.a. ConServe, in conjunction with the company's "Matching Gift Program" made the holiday season brighter for the less fortunate through their Jeans for Charity philanthropic program in December.  The program, in which ConServe employees can elect to participate in monthly charitable donations in exchange for the option of wearing jeans to work, provides employees 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 company's "Matching Gift Program."  This ongoing initiative symbolizes ConServe's commitment to its corporate mission of helping to improve the human condition.

CW Earsley, House Manager at the House of Mercy, states "Christmas is our busiest time of year. We feed thousands of families this week. If not for the House of Mercy they would not have a Christmas dinner. Thanks to the generous support of ConServe and their employees, we will be able to reach and support even more people.  Next year will be an exciting year, as we hope to be in our new, larger building and the funds donated by ConServe will certainly help make that transition possible."

"ConServe is proud to support the Open Door Mission, the House of Mercy and the Buffalo City Mission organizations as they strive to restore hope, provide support and positively change the lives of the most challenged members of our community" said Stacy Bartl, Public Relations and Communications Manager at ConServe.   She continues "treating everyone with dignity and respect while empowering them to take control of their lives is a consistent message reinforced by ConServe and its team of talented professionals."

Christopher J. Scribani, Assistant Director of Development at the Open Door Mission, Inc., adds "the Open Door Mission is very grateful to ConServe.  As an organization that is 98% funded strictly by the private sector, ConServe has helped us serve over 100,000 meals and provide in excess of 10,000 filled beds annually in our shelter while thousands of families benefit from our free clothing program."

"We are so thankful for organizations such as Conserve whose employees participate in volunteer programs such as Jeans for Charity. Through their efforts, their generous donation translates to more than 2,329 meals. It is our goal to make sure no one goes hungry any day of the year, but especially at the holidays. With a warm meal, each individual can begin the process of healing through hope," said Stuart Harper, Executive Director and CEO, of the Buffalo City Mission.
