Suburban Water Systems is dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve through a variety of sponsorships and signature programs.
Bob Hope USO Donation
Suburban employees worked together to donate over 230 items to the Ontario chapter of the USO. Large bins were set up in each office and items such as bottled drinks, toiletries and snacks were donated to the center where military personnel stop in between deployment to other locations. Suburban veterans Carlos Teves and Tony Stevens both assisted with the drop off of the items.
National Theatre for Children helps educators inspire and prepare the next generation of scientists, artists, thinkers, pioneers and world citizens by providing free curriculum and performances to schools all over the country. Each year Suburban sponsors 20-25 schools to help educate children on the water cycle and emphasize the importance of conserving one of earth’s most valuable resources.
Shepherds Pantry Donation Drive
Suburban employees teamed up with Shepherd’s Pantry located in Glendora to provide food to families in need in the communities we serve. Shepherds Pantry provides emergency food, clothing, resource assistance and educational programs to families in need during times of crisis. They provide the necessary tools and resources to help families become self-sufficient. This year Suburban employees donated over 250 food items to Shepherd’s Pantry and we hope to continue this new relationship in the future.
Free Landscape Classes
We have been hosting classes for the past 5 years and the instructor covers a lot of good information about keeping your landscape/yard in good shape while conserving water at the same time. We offer 4-5 classes p/yr.
Suburban partners with local nonprofit organizations and policymakers to distribute turkeys and “fixings” to families during Thanksgiving. In 2015, SWS delivered 1,250 turkeys to families in its service area.
Suburban is a sponsor of “Summer Concerts in the Park” in a number of the communities we serve. Suburban sets up informational booths for our customers and employees work closely with the organizers to ensure the event is successful.
Suburban employees team up yearly to participate in over 6 run/walks throughout the cities we serve. Each race is for a cause and it is great for Suburban to be able to support such causes as Relay for Life which donates directly to the American Cancer Society or the Covina Fun Run which gives back to schools in Covina and West Covina.
