Frost Valley YMCA was delighted to receive an in-kind donation of a pre-owned box truck from Combined Energy Services (CES) in Monticello. For the past 15 years, CES has been donating vehicles they are retiring from their fleet to local non-profit organizations.
“At CES, we feel it’s important to be involved in the community and support its residents,” says Mike Taylor, Combined Energy Services Manager. “As a locally owned company, we are honored to be able to give back to great non-profits like Frost Valley YMCA. Frost Valley’s mission and values of serving the community ring true with our own. We appreciate that they serve a number of children and families through its various programs and hope that our donation can help make their operations more efficient.”
A valuable resource for the 5,500-acre camp, the 2005 GMC Box Truck will be used to transport fresh produce from Frost Valley’s Educational Farm, located at 2875 Denning Road in Claryville, to be enjoyed by guests in its Main Camp Dinning Hall. The truck will also help carry equipment across camp, minimizing the burden for Frost Valley’s only other box truck.
