Petro Community Spotlight


  • Petro is proud to help the NY Grey Cadets of the Bronx support local youth! Since we live and work where you do, the Petro Home Services team always enjoys supporting local community groups. That’s why we were delighted to provide transport for the New York Grey Cadets of the Bronx (NYGC) to their offsite leadership and training activities in Lake Tiorati, in Harriman New York State Park from July 17th through July 20th, 2014.

  • Commitment to the Community: throughout 2013, the Petro team in Maspeth continued our ongoing commitment to the community by participating and sponsoring many local causes and events. Early in the year, we donated two new boilers, and our crew's installation services, to homes in the Hurricane Sandy affected community of Broad Channel, NY. You can learn more about this here ›.
  • Food, Coat & Blood Drives: we have also participated and run food and coat drives to help the needy in our NYC communities. Our annual blood drive in June 2013 brought in a huge number of team members and local neighbors to donate blood, far exceeding the target that the NY Blood Center wanted to achieve. And, on December 17th, several of our team members will be at the Bowery Mission in Manhattan, serving food to local families in need. and our annual blood drive.


  • Taking the Step by Step Challenge to raise funds for great causes.
    Many of your local Petro Health and Wellness Team and their families participated in the Annual MS Walk on April 29th as ‘The Petro Pacers’. The inspiration to join was our own Step by Step Challenge as it was a great way to encourage exercise, build camaraderie and expose our kids to giving to a worthy cause. We also organized a fund-raising event to support the MS Walk and raffled a new flat screen TV. We are also looking forward to participating in more upcoming events, including the Aids Walk, Relay for Life, the Diabetes Walk and Breast Cancer Walk. We believe that our participation in these kind of events, not only promotes our ongoing initiative of health and wellness, it also shows that Petro cares about the community that supports our business!
