Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. recently collaborated with David’s House, a nonprofit that strives to provide a place to stay, healthy meals and support for families with children receiving treatment through Dartmouth Health Children’s in Lebanon, NH.

Suburban Propane’s donation included food and pantry items necessary to create snack packs for families to take with them as they visit their hospitalized children. Volunteers from local Suburban Propane customer service centers were on-hand to build the snack packs and assist the David’s House staff in preparing gift bags for their upcoming 23rd annual fundraising golf tournament.

“We are beyond grateful to Suburban Propane and their staff for their support of our mission. As an organization that is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, we couldn’t continually provide all that we do for families without strong community partnerships such as this one,” stated Jaye Olmstead, Executive Director at David’s House. “I know that every child and family who turns to us shares our gratitude.”

“At Suburban Propane, we know that home and community is where the heart is,” said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson, Suburban Propane. “We’re proud to team up with the incredible staff at David’s House in support of their mission to provide a home-away-from-home for families experiencing one of the most difficult challenges of their lives. We hope our donation helps these families feel more nourished and secure, and we wish David’s House incredible success with their upcoming golf tournament.”

The partnership was part of the company’s SuburbanCares initiative which is dedicated to supporting community efforts across the U.S.
