Sullivan County-based Combined Energy Services uses pink delivery truck to raise awareness of breast cancer and provide funding for new mammography services at CRMC
November 5, 2012 - Monticello, N.Y. – The relationship between Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) and Combined Energy Services (CES) continued this fall season with the Sullivan County energy supplier’s yearly donation to the hospital’s Women’s Health Center.
In conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, CES, a dependable supplier of propane gas and fuel oil to the Catskills, donated 1 cent to CRMC for every gallon delivered by its “pink” delivery truck during the month, totaling $2,500 for this year’s donation. The funds will be used to support new digital mammography services to be offered at Catskill Regional’s Women’s Health Center, at 60 Jefferson Street in Monticello.
CES co-owner Mike Taylor said, “When we started this program four years ago, we really wanted a local organization to directly benefit from our awareness efforts. Catskill Regional was a natural fit and our relationship with them has helped to increase public awareness that early detection is the key to survival. We believe if this campaign sparks one person to get a mammogram and it saves them, then it was all worth it.”
CES began their philanthropic program in 2006. In 2009, the company’s principals selected Catskill Regional Medical Center to ensure the local community would directly benefit.
The CRMC Women's Health Center offers services for women of all ages, including gynecological exams, mammography, ultrasound, bone densitometry and obstetrical care.
Family owned and operated since 1968, Combined Energy Services is one of the largest propane gas suppliers in the Hudson Valley. With two offices in operation and one in the construction phase, CES has provided customers throughout the Catskills, Hudson Valley, Eastern Pennsylvania and Northern New Jersey with dependable propane gas, fuel oil and kerosene deliveries, as well as unmatched, around-the-clock repair service.
