Petro Community Spotlight



Local community sponsorship and charity event news.
On Sunday, October 6th, 2013 the Petro team braved the downpour at James Baird State Park in Pleasant Valley, NY all in the name of finding a cure for breast cancer at the 11th Annual Miles of Hope 5K. The 5K walk was attended by Wendy Howard, Christine Ungaro, Tiffany Marino, Tiela Rivera-Caputo and Melissa Howard.

Some of our employees participated in a motorcycle rally for suicide prevention and our team were also involved in another rally for support of Military Veterans.

The Petro team are proud to have sponsored a nature conservation event held locally by the nationally known organization "Ducks Unlimited"We also supported the Elizabeth Seton Children's Home annual fundraiser, as well as making a donation to the "Grace Smith House", a home for victims of domestic violence and abuse.

Our team also supported the "Common Ground Farm" in Dutchess County- an organization that teaches people of all ages how food is grown and where our food comes from by sponsoring a children's camp there. The farm also raises and donates fresh food and produce to those who need it locally. 

Local sponsorships & charity event news.
With baseball season upon us, we’re proud to sponsor local teams like the Poughkeepsie Babe Ruth League, to help involve and keep neighborhood youths active in sports. We are also lucky to have had many great opportunities to share some good will, partnering with the American Cancer Society of Dutchess County to raise funds, working with the New Paltz Rotary Club to host an event to benefit local youth, hosting a House of Hope fundraiser for the women and children of Dutchess County. The House of Hope offers a safe, supportive place to help homeless, pregnant women and young mothers aged 18-24 learn how to become competent adults as well as independent and successful parents. We continue to make donations to many local organizations, including the Jewish Community Center and the Ryan McElroy Children’s Cancer Foundation.
