Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. recently partnered with Veterans Bridge Home (VBH) to host a veterans’ hiring event and networking lunch. VBH is a Charlotte, NC-based nonprofit that helps veterans navigate employment, create social connections and settle their families.
Volunteers from Suburban Propane’s local Customer Service Center provided lunch for approximately 50 active military and veterans and discussed career opportunities available with the company throughout the Carolinas. In addition, Suburban Propane will also sponsor a one-week, five-class seminar for active military transitioning to civilian life through VBH partner Patriots Path.
“Suburban Propane is incredibly proud to partner with Veterans Bridge Home and Patriots Path in their mission to help provide services for area veterans and transition active military to civilian life and access to employment,” said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson for Suburban Propane. “As a supporter of military and veteran initiatives and a veteran employer, we are grateful to play a role in these important initiatives.”
The partnership is part of the company’s SuburbanCares initiative.
“The military provides veterans with many of the skills to remain successful after they take off their uniforms, but career transition can be a big challenge,” said Steven Cole, VP of Advancement for Veterans Bridge Home. “That’s why partnerships with companies like Suburban Propane that are investing in Veteran job readiness are so important.”
