California propane service provider hosting holiday donation drives
–Delta Liquid Energy, a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated propane marketing company, is hosting holiday donation drives at their locations for the second year in a row in the hope of making a difference in the lives of communities they serve.
“Delta Liquid Energy and the Platz family have always had an interest in contributing what we can to the local communities we service when needs arise,” Delta Liquid Energy Marketing Manager Allison Platz said. “Many organizations collect items for those in need over the holiday season and we enjoy being a part of this time of generosity. We’d like to be a location community members and our customers think of first when considering making donations to their neighbors in need.”
The drives are already in full-gear, having kicked off in October and early November, and will go until Dec. 21. Delta Liquid Energy partnered with nonprofits in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare and Kern County, as well as with the Salvation Army.
“We really want to support and partner with nonprofits that will keep the gifts collected in the local communities. We also want to partner up with larger collection programs happening in our communities because we feel this will help multiply ours and our customers’ contributions,” Platz said. “It is also important to us to collect items that the nonprofits are in most need of; this is why some locations are collecting food items and others are collecting toys or clothing. It is our hope to continue to grow this program and give more and more back each year to our communities and make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need.”
Delta Liquid Energy will also contribute donations to these organizations based upon their needs. Customers and community members are asked to drop off items to the closest Delta Liquid Energy location.
