Find out which companies are helping their communities thrive

During these difficult times, it is always nice to know which companies in the neighboring communities of Rochester and Brighton, New York are providing services to their local communities to help them stay afloat amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

We've compiled a helpful list of several local businesses that put community first, regardless of circumstances. Not only do these companies frequently partake in philanthropy, but they've also stepped up during the pandemic to create new jobs and opportunities for those in need.


Paychex is a Rochester-based company that aids businesses in human resources, payroll, and other services. They have a charitable foundation and frequently encourage employees to participate in community services as a way to give back.

In 2014, the company established the Paychex Charitable Foundation and has since provided monetary support to create economic development in communities where the company has set up operations in order to improve the quality of life for people living in these areas.

​​​​​​​Amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, Paychex has launched a 24/7 Coronavirus Help Center to help consumers and businesses ask questions and find important resources. They are also offering tools to help people find new lenders for their Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and aid their clients in finding out how much of their business loans may be forgivable.

Dixon Schwabl

Dixon Schwabl is a full-service marketing agency that generates enthusiasm for their clientele and their brands. Not only do they value fostering a warm environment to cultivate new ideas and creative energy, but they also value giving back to the Rochester community.

​​​​​​​Employees are motivated to contribute to the community since the marketing firm supports multiple nonprofit organizations. This past January, the company collected winter necessities such as coats, scarves, hats, and more and donated over 200 items to those in need throughout the holiday season during an event called "Bundle Up Rochester."

Genesee Bakery and Deli

It isn't just bigger companies giving back to their community right now. Small restaurants like Genesee Bakery and Deli are offering curbside pickup to the elderly who are having trouble finding food items right now. Its bakers are hard at work making extra bread for those who can't find any at the local supermarkets.

Marvin Mozzeroni’s

Marvin Mozzeroni's is a popular pizza joint in Rochester helping out the local community amid these trying times. They're offering an "elderly-only" day for people to come in and pick up necessary food items. They have also partnered with a local produce store to help supply free food to the elderly.​​​​​​​
