Combined Energy Services loves pets and the people who help them! That’s why the Pike County Humane Society was the recipient of a $2,000 fuel oil donation. Chris Roberts (left) and Dan Driscoll (right) presented Barry Heim, executive director PCHS, a symbolic check for fuel oil that the shelter uses to heat their buildings.
The Pike County Humane Society prevents cruelty to animals by educating people in the humane treatment of all animals. They also teach about the responsibility of pet ownership.
In addition, PCHS provides shelter, food, care and medical treatment lost, abandoned, abused and unwanted animals that come under their care.
There are many ways you can give to the Pike County Humane Society. Donate a special skill! They have tons of ongoing projects and programs that can use volunteers. When you go shopping pick up supplies from their wish list or when using Amazon Smile, select the Pike County Humane Society as your chosen charity.
The PCHS is currently raising funds to obtain a commercial washing machine. Please consider a donation to make that a reality. Check out their website at https://www.pikecountyhumanesociety.org/
CES has donated to the Pike County Humane Society several times. In July, they donated another service van to the shelter. “We are always looking for ways to give back to our community. Whether in donations, heating fuel, service vans, or equipment,” commented Mike Taylor, manager of CES.
Being a local family-owned business means that you know the businesses you support. Helping organizations that help animals is meaningful to Combined Energy Services. That’s why for over 6 years CES has donated to the Sullivan County SPCA. This year’s $4,000 fuel donation will warm both hearts and paws during this holiday season. Pictured are Ariana holding one of their available puppies and shelter manager Debbie cuddling one of her adopted pups.
The Sullivan County SPCA is a local non for profit organization which is not affiliated with any national or governmental organizations. The mission of the shelter is to rescue and find forever homes for abandoned dogs and cats. Please keep the Sullivan County SPCA in mind during this season of giving!” They are currently in the process of fund-raising to help build new dog kennels. Check out their website: http://www.sullivanspca.org/ and please make a donation.
All propane is created equally as a by-product from two processes: Natural gas processing and petroleum refining. About 90 percent of the United States’ propane supply is produced here and ¾ of the remaining 10 percent comes from Canada and Mexico. So virtually all the propane used in the U.S. comes from North America. But is it all the same?
Yes, propane is propane. There are 3 different grades of propane: HD5 (consumer grade), HD10 (allows up to 10% propylene mixed) and commercial propane (not for vehicle applications). It’s kind of like grades of eggs – Small, medium, large, extra large and jumbo. They’re all eggs, they just weigh different amounts. The creation of different grades of propane happens during the refining process.
What’s really different about propane is the company who delivers it and it’s more than just price. What kind of services do they offer besides delivering propane? Can they service your gas furnace if something goes wrong? Do they offer payment plans and purchasing options? Will they have enough propane on hand in the event of an emergency to serve their customers?
We believe that one of the most important features of great propane is where they operate. As one of only a few remaining family-owned, local energy companies, we offer propane deliveries from our New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations. Combined Energy Services invests in the communities we serve.
So, when you are looking for more than just propane, give us a call and learn about all we can offer you and your family. Visit our website combinedenergyservices.com and learn about all the great things we do!
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. Pictured on the right is Ron Lindholm, Supply & Logistics Director, handing the keys over to Vehicle Maintenance Supervisor Ken Engle .
