Hough Petroleum feels it is very important to give back to our local community. We strive to share our success with the communities that support our businesses, the causes we believe in, and the people that are most important to us.
Hough Team Members volunteer their time, resources, and skills to help raise funds throughout the year to help support the George E. Abel ’78 Memorial Scholarship and Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
Hough Petroleum established the George E. Abel ‘78 Memorial Scholarship in partnership with Rider University in 2018 to honor George and his legacy. George worked as an Account Manager with Hough Petroleum for 17 years. Hough developed this scholarship in his honor to assist college athletes at Rider by providing financial support in order to help them achieve their educational aspirations. George was passionate about sports, and spent many years playing, coaching, and refereeing various sports and inspired so many people throughout his life both at work and in his personal life.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is an organization committed to accelerating treatments and cures for muscle-debilitating diseases and helping kids and adults live longer and grow stronger. Through nationwide events in hometowns across America, donors and partners and the new Live Unlimited movement helps create a world where families are free from the harm of these devastating diseases.
In 2018, Hough Petroleum hosted its first charity golf outing and in the 3 years since its founding, we have raised over $76,000 for the MDA and George E. Abel ’78 Memorial Scholarship. We’re hosting our 4th Annual Charity Golf Outing on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at Mt. View Golf Course in Ewing, NJ.
