Shipley Energy is a company born and raised in York City. Because of that, we have a strong drive to improve the community and to give back as much as we can. One of the groups we closely work with is Downtown Inc. They are an organization that is working to enhance and encourage the investment in York’s central business district. We are stout supporters of Downtown Inc’s goal. The annual Masquerade Ball is their signature fundraising event and Shipley Energy is their primary sponsor.
As a company, we are very involved with The City of York. Many of the events we support occur around the Christmas season. York City Light Up Night is an extremely popular event that Shipley Energy sponsors. The night is a celebration full of live entertainment, family-friendly activities, food, carol singalongs, and the lighting of the York City Christmas Tree. The other event we sponsor is the Children's New Year's Party which is perfect for families.
For one week in March of 2015, Shipley Energy had various teams working on a home that Habitat for Humanity was building. The teams finished dry walling the home and assisted in other installations. The home was located in Downtown York City.
Shipley Energy is a proud partner of Utopian State of Mind (USOM) and their groundbreaking strategy to provide all the tools necessary for people to succeed in today’s workforce. Learn more about what USOM can do for you.
We are also part of the York Revolution and one of their big events is the annual Halloween parade. Community involvement is extremely important to Shipley Energy so ensure that our community continues to thrive and grow.
Every year, Shipley Energy has a team participate in the County Cup. The County Cup is a fundraising event held by the Rotary Club of York where teams of players participate in games of croquet. There are various cash prizes that can be won and are all given to charity. Shipley Energy’s charity is raising money for the Reid Menzer Memorial Skatepark. The skatepark is located close to the Penn State, York campus. The park opened in September of 2008 as a memorial to 14-year-old Reid Menzer, who was killed when he was struck by a car while riding his street luge. The park is extremely unique and heavily used as it provides a much needed, safe space for skateboarders to ride. As of now, the park is so popular that it requires expansion.
