Spring Valley Rotary Honors Orange & Rockland For 'Outstanding Community Service'
The Spring Valley Rotary recently (May 21) presented its annual Outstanding Community Service Award to Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc.(O&R) at a gala reception at the Nyack Seaport in Nyack.
O&R, whose main operations center is located in Spring Valley, many years ago, adopted the phrase “doing well by doing good” as one of its guiding principles.
Since then, the company has put those words into action through its strong support for community-based programs that make its service area a stronger, more vibrant, more successful community.
Over the past five years alone, O&R and its employees have donated more than $2.8 million to enrich the quality of life in the communities they serve. The company’s portion of those donations comes from its shareholders’ funds.
In addition, O&R supports its employees’ extensive volunteering efforts with, among many others: Habitat for Humanity, Girl Scouts of the Hudson Valley and a wide variety of fire departments and little league baseball teams.
