Advocating for Mental Health, Financial Literacy and Organ/Tissue/Blood Donation

Jeans For Charity Program Funds Used to Promote Wellness Initiatives

Rochester, N.Y. – The team of employees from Continental Service Group, Inc., dba ConServe,  directed the June proceeds from their ongoing Jeans For Charity donation program to varied local organizations that focus on empowering and enhancing people's lives. The June program recipients were the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Buffalo & Erie County and the Mental Health Association of Rochester - two organizations that promote wellness through services and help individuals find resources to achieve and maintain mental wellness, Upstate New York Transplant Services (unyts) - an organization that aims to save and enhance lives through organ, eye, tissue and blood donation, and Junior Achievement (JA) - an organization that promotes work readiness, entrepreneurialism and strengthens financial skills.

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 its corporate mission of helping to improve the human condition.

Stacy Bartl, ConServe's Public Relations Director, adds that ConServe's employees take pride in their pledge to give back to their communities on a regular basis.  "Our team members are actively involved in their local neighborhoods:  they work here, they live here and raise their children here.  They are inspired to know they are helping people just like themselves overcome challenges while simultaneously obtaining life-changing guidance and services."
