Suburban Propane provided a pizza party celebration yesterday for the students and staff at Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma-Marin. The company provided pizza and salad for the Club’s 400 students and staff across 12 clubs in the Santa Rosa, CA area. The pizza party was sourced from and delivered by Chandi Hospitality Group, a franchisee of Mountain Mike’s Pizza, the Official Pizza Partner of the San Francisco 49ers.
"We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Suburban Propane," said Michelle Edwards, Executive Vice President of Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma-Marin. "Our Club kids and our dedicated staff have persevered through trying times this school year and an appreciation lunch from Mountain Mike's Pizza is a wonderful way to recognize their efforts."
This initiative is part of Suburban Propane’s SuburbanCares platform which is dedicated to supporting community efforts across the company’s footprint in the United States. This year, Suburban Propane is undertaking initiatives to help children in underserved communities in Philadelphia, PA; Santa Fe, NM; Santa Rosa, CA; Charleston, SC; Detroit, MI; New Brunswick, NJ; and has fed healthcare professionals in some of the most COVID-19 affected regions in the nation; including Florida, California, Texas, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Washington, DC.
In April, to help commemorate Earth Day, Suburban Propane also made a sizable monetary donation to the City of Santa Rosa to help with its reforestation efforts, committing to plant new trees in the downtown area to replace existing dead trees.
“The last year has been difficult on all of us, but through it all Boys & Girls Club continues to do great work in our community. My son is actively involved in their basketball program and is really enjoying the experience,” said Sonu Chandi, Owner of Chandi Hospitality. “It’s wonderful that Suburban Propane is thanking these unsung heroes in true Mountain Mike’s fashion…with pizza! We’ve all had to roll with the punches during the pandemic, overcoming challenge after challenge, but our nonprofits need to be supported more than ever so they can continue their important work. We’re honored to partner with Suburban Propane to extend this token of appreciation and hope it makes a difference.”
