A well-known Hudson Valley family-owned business has just launched a new charitable initiative for 2021, aimed at helping both people and animals in their own backyard.

GARDINER, NEW YORK — Kimlin Energy Services, a third-generation fuel service provider based in Gardiner, New York, is pleased to announce its new program: “Community of Caring”, promoting Hudson Valley organizations that offer care for the most vulnerable of our neighbors, including animals, children, and the economically disadvantaged.

During each month of 2021, Kimlin will focus on sponsoring and promoting a local non-profit organization. Organizations designated for Kimlin support this year will include the Ulster County SPCA, the local chapter of March of Dimes, Family of Woodstock, and Lost Pets of the Hudson Valley. The first organization featured throughout February is the Dutchess County SPCA.

According to Max Kimlin, president of Kimlin Energy Services and grandson of the company’s founder, “Now entering its fourth decade of business, Kimlin owes its ongoing success to our friends and neighbors in the Valley. That’s why we are totally dedicated to giving back to the community. 

“Kimlin’s new Community of Caring initiative is the latest way we can say thank you to the Hudson Valley, by helping lift up some great local organizations. Their lifesaving work makes the Hudson Valley a far better place, and they deserve our support!”

Throughout 2021, Kimlin will spotlight several different local non-profit organizations on popular radio station WBPM 92.9FM, a longtime partner. Kimlin will also raise the profile of these groups on social media and in other high-profile consumer media, such as newspaper and website ads and billboards. Promotions will encourage the community to learn more about these organizations, inviting people to consider volunteering and donating.  

As the Community of Caring program progresses, Max Kimlin promises to bring additional local groups into the campaign, to promote their crucial humanitarian missions. 

This is the latest of ongoing charitable efforts by Kimlin. For several years, Kimlin has underwritten a WBPM radio segment on “Miller in the Morning” called “Miller’s Animal Rescue” that helped find forever homes for scores of homeless and shelter dogs and cats though the Hudson Valley Animal Rescue and Sanctuary organization.

Established in 1982 in Ulster County as a propane company by Douglas Kimlin, Kimlin Energy Services has grown over the years to include propane and heating oil delivery, equipment installation and service, and commercial fuels services. Their service area has grown to include Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Putnam, Greene, Columbia and Sullivan counties.

The Dutchess County SPCA received a donated upgrade to its propane heating systems that will save the non-profit over $10,000 in the first year in energy costs. In replacing old equipment and installing new underground propane linestanks, and other energy saving equipmentthe DCSPCA will potentially save tens of thousands of dollars over the coming years in energy costs.  The equipment and service, along with a donation of 1,000 gallons of propane, was provided by Gardiner, NY-based Kimlin Energy Services as part of its ongoing community commitment to animal welfare.  The propane will be used for heat and operations. 

The COVID-19 crisis has hit non-profits especially hard, with fewer donations and limited opportunities for fundraising.  The DCSPCA’s mission however continues in securing caring, responsible homes for adoptable animals, as does its humane law and telemedicine services.  Helping to rescue pets in communities hard hit by the virus, where animals have been left homeless, has become a key challenge for the organization during this unprecedented time. The fuel donation will help DCSPCA continue in those efforts.  

“The current times have brought new challenges to our organization, including the complications of outreach and fundraising” says Lynne Meloccaro, Executive Director of the DCSPCA.  “Kimlin’s generous donation of service, equipment and fuel helps us not only in taking care of the immediate challenges, but enables us to implement new initiatives planned at our location, including the relocation of our Thrift Store to our main location – a key goal we have had for several years” says Meloccaro. 

According to Max Kimlin, president of Kimlin Energy Services, “Our company is incredibly pleased to be able to help during these difficult times.  The care and safety of animals is part of who we are at our family-owned business. Our company will continue to make commitments to Hudson Valley animal welfare organizations to help in the current challenges and beyond” he added. 

The Dutchess County SPCA is located at 636 Violet AvenueHyde Park.  Donations may be made online to support their mission of finding caring, responsible, permanent homes for adoptable animals, in addition to serving the community in a host of ways, at
