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 .
Frost Valley YMCA is a values-driven organization with a mission to foster youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility through outdoor educational and recreational programs for all. Located in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, Frost Valley provides year-round access to nature and fun through programs such as summer camp, adventure trips, farm camp, equestrian programs, group and family retreats, family weekends, school trips, teambuilding and more. Frost Valley, a not-for-profit organization chartered through the YMCA of the USA, is guided in this pursuit by its core values which serve as pathways for guests as they bond with nature and each other: Caring, Community, Diversity, Honesty, Inclusiveness, Respect, Responsibility, and Stewardship.
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.

This is our 2nd van donation to the Pike County Humane Society (PCHS). They are a non-profit, no kill shelter that operates solely from donations, and every little bit helps. This January marked their 21st year of operation. Remember they not only take in and care for pets but they also are able to respond to cases of abuse. Consider visiting their website and making your own donation or when looking for a new fur baby, visit them at 189 Lee Road, Shohola during operating hours.

The 2019 Allyson Whitney Run for Love 5k is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser, and this year it is the PEACE LOVE RUN even honoring the roots of our community with the Woodstock 50th celebration. Combined Energy Services is proud to have donated $5,000 to their cause!
Combined Energy Services Loves to Help AWF!!
The Allyson Whitney Foundation is a 503-C non-profit foundation that focuses on helping young adults with rare cancers. The Foundation primarily provides you adult cancer patients with “Life Interrupted Grants™” to ease their financial burden, so that they can concentrate their energy on healing.
Their inspiration, Allyson Whitney Strong, ended her most difficult battle with Small Cell Cervical Cancer in 2011. She was 25 years young. She always dreamed of a day where she could help others in her situation; and in loving memory, this Foundation is her dream come true!
“Life Interrupted Grants™” are provided by the AWF to U.S. citizens between the ages of 16 and 26 years of age, who are currently undergoing treatment or recently finished protocol. Grants help cover unanticipated expenses including gas, tolls, transportation, hotels, rent and wigs. Learn more here.
How CES Helps?
This is the 8th year CES has donated to the Allyson Whitney Foundation. A portion of the sales from our specially branded Allyson Whitney Foundation propane truck gets donated to the Foundation. Combined Energy Services has known the Strong family for many years and stands behind the Foundation’s efforts, proud to be a sponsor and play a small part in their worthy mission.
Combined Energy Services donated a GMC 7500 to 10 Mile River Scout Camp today. Mike Taylor hands the keys over to TMR Ranger Lou Farragher. The camp is going to turn it into a dump truck. “CES is happy to help such a great local non-profit such as TMR,” Taylor said. ” Tens of thousands of scouts over the last 90+ years have created life long memories at the camp,” he continued.
This is the 4th vehicle in a year that CES has donated to Ten Mile River, a 12,000-acre Scout Reservation that is home to three traditional Scout summer camps and a Family Camp. Located in Sullivan County, near Monticello and Narrowsburg, it is operated year-round and has been a CES propane customer for over 20 years.
CES is proud to be a family owned, local company who has been serving the community for 50+ years. We’re honored to be able to give-back to great local non-profits in the region like TMR.
