Suburban Propane joined forces with Happy Hats for Kids in Hospitals, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Torrance, CA that creates and donates superhero hats and Hero Club Gift Packages with bilingual books, crayons and stickers to children with cancer, COVID-19, and other life-threatening illnesses. Suburban Propane’s donation will fund more than 1,300 superhero hats and Hero Club Gift Packages, which will be provided to kids in more than 65 local hospitals.

On November 17th, volunteers from Suburban Propane’s Torrance location, along with Torrance Mayor Patrick Furey, Torrance Councilmember Aurelio Mattucci, and Torrance Councilmember George Chen, gathered at the Happy Hats for Kids in Hospitals headquarters to decorate superhero and holiday hats and assemble Hero Club Gift Packages. The completed packages were then provided to Providence TrinityKids Care hospice.

“The City of Torrance is so appreciative of Suburban Propane’s generous donation to Happy Hats for Kids in Hospitals, providing more than 1,300 Hero Hats and Hero Club Gift Packages to children in hospitals across the county,” said Mayor Patrick Furey, City of Torrance. “Throughout my career, I have focused on issues facing children in Los Angeles County and deeply understand how an act of kindness can make a big difference in a child’s life.”

“We are delighted to receive such a generous donation to our heartwarming charity Happy Hats for Kids in Hospitals,” said Sheri Waldstein, Founder/Executive Director, Happy Hats for Kids in Hospitals. “The creatively decorated hats made by Suburban Propane’s employees will bring smiles and happiness to hospitalized children and those in hospice. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

The collaboration is part of Suburban Propane’s SuburbanCares initiative which is dedicated to supporting community efforts across the company’s footprint in the United States. This year, SuburbanCares undertook initiatives to help children in numerous underserved communities; including Albany, NY; Boise, ID; Detroit, MI; Philadelphia, PA; Santa Fe, NM; Santa Rosa, CA; Columbia and Charleston, SC; Detroit, MI; and New Brunswick, NJ.
