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.
