Central Hudson Honored by Rebuilding Together Dutchess County

Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation was recognized by Rebuilding Together Dutchess County for its longstanding commitment to deserving families as a 25-Year Milestone Supporter during the organization's 25th anniversary event on Sept. 28, 2017. Through the efforts of employee-volunteers, Central Hudson has helped repair and rebuild the homes of qualified local residents, while also providing support to the organization since its beginnings 25 years ago.

"We're honored by this recognition, and grateful for the opportunity to support the mission of Rebuilding Together Dutchess County," said Michael L. Mosher, President and C.E.O. of Central Hudson.  "We're also very proud of our employees' willingness to volunteer their time and considerable talents each year to help improve the homes of our neighbors in need."

"Central Hudson has been involved with Rebuilding Together Dutchess County since our inception in 1992 and has sponsored a project every year," said Christina Boryk, Executive Director. "We thank them for their continued support and dedication to the community."

Rebuilding Together Dutchess County organizes and coordinates volunteer efforts to repair the homes of qualifying families and individuals, with the goals of creating a safer and healthier home environment. A team of Central Hudson employee-volunteers tackle home repair and accessibility projects each year, and employees have also served in leadership roles for the organization.

Central Hudson employee Jay Tompkins, who accepted the recognition on behalf of Central Hudson and has organized Rebuilding Together projects with fellow employee-volunteers for 6 years as a co-lead and Volunteer Coordinator, says of the experience, "It really provides a sense of satisfaction, not only for ourselves but for the person or family whose home we're working on. When you step back and you look at what you did, it's really quite amazing to see what we can accomplish together."
