Whippany, NJ (April 28, 2021) — Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. has made a donation to Growing Up New Mexico: The Early Childhood Partnership in Santa Fe, New Mexico, providing 500 Spanish-language books and more than 100 educational, developmentally-appropriate toys.
Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber presented Suburban Propane with a congratulatory proclamation, which designated the day as "Suburban Propane Day," also marking Suburban Propane’s second anniversary in Santa Fe.
“I want to express my great appreciation to Suburban Propane for making such a generous contribution to the kids of Santa Fe,” said Webber. “Suburban Propane recognizes the big difference that Spanish-language books and toys that nurture development can make in the life of a young person. It means a lot for the company to give that kind of support to our families and we’re enormously grateful.”
This initiative is part of Suburban Propane’s SuburbanCares platform, which is dedicated to supporting community efforts across their footprint in the United States. This year, Suburban Propane is undertaking initiatives to help children in underserved communities, including in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Santa Rosa, California; Charleston, South Carolina; Detroit, Michigan; Worcester, Massachussetts; and New Brunswick, New Jersey.
In addition, the SuburbanCares corporate pillar has focused on giving back to the frontline health-care professionals by providing meals in some of the most COVID-19 affected regions in the nation; including Florida, California, Texas, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C.
“We thank Suburban Propane for their generosity. At Growing Up New Mexico, we have programs for families and childcare providers with children under five years old. Our commitment is to provide developmental toys that demonstrate the creativity and resourcefulness of children. We also mail children’s books in Spanish to over 500 families quarterly to encourage communication and learning for our bilingual and Spanish language home environments,” said Abby Bordner, vice president of development, Growing Up New Mexico: The Early Childhood Partnership.
