Celebrating World Caring Day and World LPG Day

June 7th marks a special occasion for Suburban Propane as we celebrate World Caring Day and World LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) Day. This unique convergence of events underscores Suburban Propane’s dedication to providing cleaner efficient energy but also our commitment to our employees and giving back to the communities in which we operate.

Building on Suburban Propane’s legacy spanning nearly a century, the spirit of philanthropy and community involvement are integral parts of our company’s culture and values. As part of the Company’s ongoing SuburbanCares efforts, employees made significant contributions to the well-being of their neighbors and neighborhoods across our 42-state national presence. In honor of both World Caring Day and World LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) Day, we look back and reflect on the employee volunteering initiatives we’ve embarked on year to date.

Among the community initiatives pursued, several have made a positive impact, including:


In addition to local community efforts, Suburban Propane employees, joined by family and friends, made a significant impact on the environment by engaging in a wide assortment of earth-centric volunteering efforts and clean-up activities as part of the Company’s ongoing Go Green with Suburban Propane initiative, including:

  • Laramie, Wyoming: Assisted Feeding Laramie Valley, a non-profit organization, with preparing community gardens for the upcoming growing season and supporting their mission to alleviate food insecurity through a locally-led, sustainable, and all-encompassing food system that benefits residents in need
  • Fort Myers, Florida: Collaborated with the City of Fort Myers to beautify a stretch of State Rt. 41 by clearing debris and garbage from the roadway
  • Phoenix, New York: Teamed up with the Village of Phoenix to organize a street and sidewalk clean-up event, to remove trash along a stretch of Route 57
  • Coventry, Rhode Island: Worked with the Coventry Department of Public Works to clear local streets of trash and debris
  • Eugene, Oregon: Joined efforts with the City of Eugene Parks and Open Spaces for an event to remove trash and waste littered along the riverbank of Maurie Jacobs Park
  • Susquehanna Valley, Pennsylvania: In a combined effort with the Montgomery House Library, volunteers made repairs throughout the establishment and helped clean, organize, and shelf books contributing to the library’s overall improvement
  • Detroit, Michigan: Teamed up with the State of Michigan’s Island Lake Recreation Department to gather litter and beautify open spaces surrounding local beaches
  • Brevard, North Carolina: Partnered with the City of Brevard’s Adopt-a-Green Space Program, to facilitate the cleaning and restoration of the garden at Tannery Skate Park

On this dual celebration, Suburban Propane reflects on our dedication to delivering reliable propane services providing energy to homes and businesses, while nurturing the nationwide communities we serve. Suburban Propane is incredibly proud of our employees and their commitment towards their communities and conscientious efforts in environmental stewardship.
