Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. was honored by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce this weekend with the Good Neighbor Award. The award is presented annually by the Chamber to a local business demonstrating great corporate citizenship through volunteerism and support of the community and nonprofit organizations.

"We're honored to accept this award, as we are truly committed to the communities we serve," said Michael L. Mosher, President and C.E.O. "The award also embodies the spirit of our employees, who each year volunteer their time and resources to community service organizations and carry forward our mission of service to our customers. We're proud of our employees' dedication to the communities we serve and their willingness to support those in need."

"Central Hudson's more than 1,000 employees pride themselves on a commitment to integrity, hard work and accountability, and they carry forward a strong and unique dedication to the posterity of local customers and communities," said Frank M. Castella, Jr., President and C.E.O. of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. "Through financial and volunteer support of the United Way, the Chamber and its Foundation, and hundreds of other nonprofit causes, Central Hudson and its employees continue a more-than-century-long devotion to making our region a great place to live, work and raise a family."

Central Hudson and its employees support community service organizations through volunteerism and contributions and provided more than $730,000 to local not-for-profit agencies and small business organizations during 2017, with more than $7 million in such contributions made during the last 10 years.
