SuburbanCares® 2023 Year in Review

As 2023 comes to an end, we find ourselves in reflection of the year we’ve had. Among Suburban Propane’s many strengths, our commitment to our employees and the communities we serve is paramount and demonstrated through our SuburbanCares® philanthropic endeavors.

Drawing on Suburban Propane’s 95-year legacy, the spirit of philanthropy and community engagement shone bright throughout the year. The Company and its employees actively contributed to the well-being of their neighbors and neighborhoods across our 42-state national footprint. Our SuburbanCares® initiatives extended beyond financial donations, encompassing volunteerism and collaborative efforts to address local challenges. This collective commitment fosters a sense of unity, resilience, and shared responsibility.

In an era where fostering connections is crucial, the commitment to philanthropy and community involvement illustrates how individuals uniting can construct a more resilient and empathetic space for everyone. We give thanks to all the employees, organizations, and national partners who contributed to the remarkable events of 2023. Looking to future, we eagerly anticipate the continuation of our SuburbanCares® initiatives in 2024 and beyond.
