Volunteers from Suburban Propane pose for a picture commemorating their service to Samaritan Center.

Suburban Propane Partners L.P., a nationwide distributor and marketer of propane, renewable propane, renewable natural gas, fuel oil and related products and services, collaborated with Samaritan Center, a nonprofit, interfaith effort of community members committed to serving the hungry and those in need. A donation from Suburban Propane helped fund hot meals and stock the basic needs closet for hundreds of local residents facing food insecurity.

Suburban Propane employees from the Syracuse Customer Service Center, Syracuse Credit and Collection Center, and Syracuse Distribution Center all participated in the volunteer event, serving hot food during all meal periods and distributing supplies to those in need.

“SuburbanCares is dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we live and operate,” said Nandini Sankara, Suburban Propane spokesperson. “Organizations like the Samaritan Center lift up communities with dignity and support, and we are honored to work with them.”


The endeavor is part of the company’s SuburbanCares initiative, which is dedicated to supporting community efforts across the United States. Recently, SuburbanCares has undertaken charitable endeavors in numerous underserved communities and have fed healthcare professionals in some of the most COVID-affected regions in the nation, including Florida, California, Texas, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.

“Suburban Propane’s incredible generosity, by both donating and volunteering, makes an incredible impact on our organization. Samaritan Center is so much more than just a meal. It provides hope and dignity for thousands. Suburban Propane understands who we are and what we do and we are so happy to partner with them,” said Mary Beth Frey, executive director, Samaritan Center.
