ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The employees of Continental Service Group, Inc., dba ConServe, joined together in the month of December to support local agencies that provide programs to the homeless and disadvantaged people of our communities. ConServe’s Jeans For Charity program, along with the company’s “Matching Gift Program,” generously donated to House of Mercy, Buffalo City Mission and the Open Door Mission. This ongoing initiative symbolizes ConServe’s commitment to its corporate mission of helping to improve the human condition.
Rochester Open Door Mission Executive Director, Anna Valeria-Iseman states, "We are so thrilled and full of gratitude to be part of this incredibly generous show of support. Open Door distributed 1,300 pounds of clothing in December, 2019 and is more than we have received in any other month for as long as we have tracked that data. This means that more and more families are coming to us for assistance. To be blessed with this level of support for much-needed items, for men, women, and children right here in Rochester, is amazing.”
“Our Jeans for Charity program provides our employees with the opportunity to enjoy dressing down while making a difference in our community,” said George Huyler, ConServe’s Vice President of Human Resources. “At ConServe, our corporate culture is based upon doing the right thing, at the right time, the right way.

About ConServe’s Jeans For Charity Program
ConServe’s Jeans For Charity initiative began in 2008 when their employees had an idea to launch a program that would provide a way of giving back to their communities. ConServe employees can participate in monthly charitable donations, benefitting a wide-range of not-for-profits (501-C-3) organizations, 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 is just one of the ways in which ConServe supports varied and diverse community agencies. To date, the program has donated over $997,900 to local community organizations.
