Recently, the Peckham Family Foundation donated $100,000 to the Pleasant Valley Fire District to support the completion of the “Mill Pump” replacement project. This project aims to bring desperately needed water to the Pleasant Valley firehouse through replacing the currently broken fire pump. The endeavor will provide the water that is necessary for fire protection throughout the district directly from the Wappinger Creek.
As the parent company to Peckham Materials Corp. in Pleasant Valley, Peckham feels a strong commitment to serve its communities’ interests. This donation by the Peckham Family Foundation is one example of how Peckham strives to provide value in the communities it operates in. Peckham Sales Representative and Pleasant Valley resident, Kevin McCarthy, stated, “Donating money to move this stalled project along is a small part of being a good neighbor and that’s what we are. From blood drives to donating materials and helping rebuild the library after the fire, we’re committed to this great town. Helping the fire department get their most important tool, water, just makes sense to the Peckham family.” The Mill Pump project is now on track to begin progressing forward.
