Supporting Our Heroes with Operation Adopt A Soldier

Earlier this week, Suburban Propane collaborated with Operation Adopt a Soldier (OAAS), a nonprofit based in Saratoga Springs, New York, dedicated to supporting deployed military personnel by sending them care packages.

Local Suburban Propane employees assembled over 500 parcels containing essential items most requested by soldiers, such as snacks, games, and other supplies. Moreover, these packages included letters of encouragement and gratitude written by Suburban Propane employees across the region, serving as a tangible token of appreciation and a comforting reminder of home. In addition to the packing event, the local Customer Service Center in Fort Edward, New York, has been collecting donations for this event and others in the future. This initiative is part of the Company’s ongoing SuburbanCares efforts, which support local communities across its 42-state footprint.

OAAS has been a beacon of support for U.S. soldiers stationed around the globe since its inception in 2003. Founded on the principles of volunteerism and gratitude, OAAS aims to shed light on the sacrifices made by military personnel and their families in safeguarding our country’s freedoms. By partnering with Operation Adopt a Soldier, local Suburban Propane employees volunteered time and energy as an opportunity to give back to those who serve our nation daily.

Suburban Propane has a strong history of supporting active military personnel, veterans, and their families. Through the company’s “Heroes Hired Here” program, Suburban Propane offers various employment incentives and benefits to members of the military community, recognizing the immense sacrifices made by these courageous individuals in defending our freedom. We are incredibly proud of our employees who have selflessly served our country.
