UNITED WAY HONORS O&R FOR TOP-DONOR FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

O&R’s Brian McPartland, co-chair of this year’s O&R campaign; O&R’s Customer Service Section Manager and UWRC Board of Directors’ member David Braunfotel; United Way of Rockland’s Treasurer Richard Carroll and O&R Strategic Partnerships Manager Linda Feger.

PEARL RIVER – United Way of Rockland County (UWRC) has named Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R) its Top Corporate Donor for its successful fundraising drive that this year raised over $150,000 to support United Way programs.

O&R achieved this year’s United Way campaign results by combining a dynamic fund-raising drive partnership between the Company and its bargaining unit, IBEW Local 503, with a dollar-for-dollar, shareholder match to raise $157,128.

The O&R-IBEW Local 503 fund-raising drive raised $78,564 from among O&R’s current employees and its retirees. The Company matched that sum dollar-for-dollar with another $78,564 from the shareholder funds of Consolidated Edison, Inc., O&R’s parent company.

Since 1993, O&R and Local 503 have donated approximately $4 million in employee and retiree contributions and shareholder matches to the United Way.
