We care about our community
CMP believes that you should support worthy organizations in the community you serve. In addition to donating funds for the fight against breast cancer, we support the Moshannon Valley Black Knight Booster Club, Philipsburg-Osceola Little League, Houtzdale Little League and other local activities.
The CMP Cool Zone
This past summer we introduced our community to the CMP Cool Zone at Philipsburg Heritage Days. The tent idea was put together with the community in mind. Since Heritage Days is right in the dog days of summer we felt having a cooled tent would be a great way to keep you feeling refreshed as you visited Heritage Days.
We plan to continue the Cool Zone, and hope to see you again next year!
CMP steps up to deliver a cure for breast cancer
Our new pink propane truck is getting a lot of attention as it makes its neighborhood rounds. And pink is not your typical color for a fuel delivery vehicle. The truck is raising awareness— and money— for an important cause. For every gallon of propane gas delivered from the pink truck, CMP will donate two cents to the Pittsburgh affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is the largest source of nonprofit funds in the fight against breast cancer. We have now raised more then $9,000 for the cause.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure (www.komen.org) was established in 1982 by Nancy G. Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is an international organization with a network of volunteers who work for local chapters like Komen Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh chapter sponsors annual events like the Race for the Cure.
This is our way of giving back and raising awareness to inspire people to get involved. Besides donating two cents for every gallon we deliver, we’re also asking our customers, vendors and suppliers to make individual donations.
Cancer has touched everyone’s lives, including our own right here at CMP. Jeff Mitchell, CEO of CMP, recently lost his mother Jolene. Despite our losses, all of us are blessed to have family and friends in our lives, and it’s only right that when we have the opportunity to give back, we do it.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure truck, which has been dubbed “The Pink Lady,” started making deliveries in November. The truck was formally introduced at a dedication ceremony at our office on Feb 23. Deliveries from The Pink Lady will be rotated throughout the CMP service area this winter.
We recognize all the good work that’s been done by Komen for the Cure, and that’s why we partnered with them. We hope we can make a positive difference in people’s lives with these efforts.
