Initiative Supports Camp Good Day and Special Times & Big Brothers Big Sisters
Rochester, N.Y. – The employees of Continental Service Group, Inc., d.b.a. ConServe, reinforced its commitment to giving back to its local communities through the generous support of Camp Good Days and Special Times and the Big Brothers Big Sisters organizations. Through the company's Jeans For Charity program, in which ConServe employees can elect to participate in monthly charitable donations in exchange for the option of wearing jeans to work, employees are provided 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 organization's "Matching Gift Program." This ongoing initiative symbolizes ConServe's commitment to good corporate citizenship.
"We are grateful to ConServe and its employees for generously supporting our mentoring programs again this year through their Jeans for Charity program," said Thomas J. Guagliardo, CEO Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County. "The money donated will make a remarkable difference in the lives of children facing adversity right here in our community by matching them with a caring Big Brother or Big Sister. With the support of a mentor, the children in our program show great improvements both socially and academically."
Stacy Bartl, Manager of ConServe's Public Relations and Communications, emphasizes that "an integral part of ConServe's mission statement is the development of positive relationships within our community. Towards that goal, each and every member of our ConServe team is committed to giving back and improving the human condition through impactful and meaningful work."
