Boston, Mass. — Eastern Propane & Oil is announcing a new partnership with Disabled American Veterans Department of Massachusetts as part of their ongoing commitment to New England Veterans. Beyond fully branding two propane delivery trucks with the DAV logo, Eastern has committed to a donation of one penny donated for every gallon of propane that is delivered through the trucks. This program was piloted with a veteran’s organization in New Hampshire and Eastern is thrilled to now raise money for Massachusetts Veterans.

EASTERN: “We are extremely honored to partner with the DAV Department of Massachusetts. The work they are doing is truly remarkable and it is a privilege to support this organization,” said Jim Blake, MA Regional Manager for Eastern Propane & Oil. “In 2023, DAV Department of MA celebrated one hundred years of service, and this is a unique way to start the next one hundred years of excellence. The voluntary services they provide are desperately needed by a population of individuals who served this great nation, and our hope is this partnership will provide necessary funding to reach more individuals. In addition to the delivery trucks, we are also eager to support their fundraising efforts through partnership of local events.”

DAV: “DAV Department of Massachusetts is proud to have a partner that shares in dedication to our mission and service to veterans. It is through efforts of community partners, like Eastern Propane, that allow us to continue the quality care and services we provide to keep our promise to America’s veterans. Chosen as the recipient of donations from Eastern Propane’s program is truly an honor and we look forward to our continued partnership in service to veterans and their families.”


In addition to donations like this, Eastern Propane & Oil also offers a Hometown Hero discount on both fuel and service repairs to help Active-Duty Military, Veterans and First Responders save a little during the colder months.
