Charleston, S.C. (April 12, 2021) — On April 5 and April 12, Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. teamed up with Tanger Outlets and the Charleston Riverdogs Minor League Baseball Organization, to shop and package clothing, shoes, face masks, plush toys and other essentials for children ages 5-18 for the Lowcountry Orphan Relief, a nonprofit organization that provides goods and services to children who have been abused or neglected.
“Through our SuburbanCares corporate pillar, it’s incredibly rewarding to give back to the communities that we serve,” said Nandini Sankara, spokesperson, Suburban Propane. “We’re humbled to partner with Lowcountry Orphan Relief to support these children in need, and grateful to our participating partners who assisted with providing clothing and much needed essentials. We hope this donation helps make a difference for this organization and the community in a meaningful way.”
Suburban Propane, Tanger Outlets, Chris Singleton from the Charleston Riverdogs, local college athletes, and Lowcountry Orphan Relief all participated in the shopping event on April 5 at Tanger Outlets Old Navy, funded by Suburban Propane. On April 12, participating companies gathered together to collect, assemble and package all of the clothing, shoes, face masks, plush toys and essentials at Joe Riley Stadium for pick-up and distribution.
These efforts resulted in the creation of 100 care packs for local children, which helps fulfill the most immediate clothing needs for Lowcountry Orphan Relief.
This initiative is part of the SuburbanCares brand pillar, designed to assist in community efforts across the United States. Suburban Propane is currently undertaking similar initiatives to support children and their basic needs in some of the most-affected regions in the nation, including Detroit, Michigan; Sante Fe, New Mexico; Santa Rosa, California; Worcester, Massachusetts; New Brunswick, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
