PORCO ENERGY UNVEILS “DELIVERIES FOR A CAUSE” TRUCK DEDICATED TO ANDERSON CENTER FOR AUTISM

Staatsburg, NY — Porco Energy, a third generation, family-owned company, recently held a very
special ceremony to mark the dedication of their second “Deliveries for a Cause” truck at
Anderson Center for Autism’s Campus in Staatsburg, NY. Anderson students and adults and
family members attended the dedication of the colorfully decorated truck, along with Anderson
staff and community members.

Patrick Paul, Anderson’s incoming CEO, expressed gratitude to the Porco family, five of whom
are currently on staff at Porco Energy. He said, “The Porco Energy family has gone more than
the extra mile on our behalf. Every mile they travel in this beautiful new truck is a moving
reminder of the daily challenge of individuals on the autism spectrum and the important work
being done at Anderson Center for Autism. It is an inspirational contribution by a philanthropic
area business.”

Joe Porco, President of Porco Energy, spoke at the celebration. “The Porco family believes in
supporting the communities we serve. In 2009, we began our “Deliveries for a Cause” program
with a pink breast cancer awareness truck and we make quarterly donations to the Miles of
Hope Foundation. When we were ready to dedicate another truck, we decided that Anderson
Center for Autism was another large local organization doing excellent work, and that we
wanted to support them through our second ‘Truck for a Cause.’ We sincerely hope that it will
prompt people throughout our delivery area to give generously to Anderson Foundation for
Autism. Proceeds from every delivery made by these trucks go to support these great causes.”

Students from Anderson’s Education Center and adults from Anderson programs were
delighted by the large colorful truck and got to see it up close and even sit in the driver’s seat.
Staff members from Porco Energy were moved to see the reaction of the individuals and Joe
Porco expressed that everyone felt that it was “heart-warming to be collaborating for such a
worthwhile organization.”

Lillian and Tony Porco founded Porco Energy in 1954 in the Hudson Valley and today the
company services residential customers throughout the area with propane, fuel oil and
kerosene. They provide gasoline and diesel to commercial accounts and have a network of
convenience store locations that participate in their “BBQ Exchange.”
