Earlier this week Suburban Propane employees collaborated with the Samaritan Center. For over 40 years this non-profit interfaith effort of community members has been committed to serving the hungry and those in need, in Syracuse, New York.

Employee’s from our Syracuse Customer Service Center, Syracuse Credit and Collection Center, and Syracuse Distribution Center answered the call and participated in the volunteer event. They served hot food during all meal periods for the Daily Meal Program and handed out supplies to Samaritan Center guests through the Basic Needs Distribution program.

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

A donation from Suburban Propane helped fund hot meals for local residents facing food insecurity as well as stocking the basic needs closet with most needed items like soap, toothpaste, and deodorant. The endeavor is part of our SuburbanCares initiative which is dedicated to supporting community efforts across the United States.

“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.”

We are proud of our 22 employees for sharing our desire to do good in our communities and taking the time to volunteer.

Samaritan Center runs a variety of programs and has multiple ways residents in the Syracuse area can get involved. Learn more by visiting their website at samcenter.org.
