Did you know?
It is said that Webster’s first dictionary in 1806 defined success as being “generous, prosperous, and kind.” Regrettably, the most recently published definition of success is “getting or achieving wealth, respect, and fame.” We are honored to do business based on the 1806 definition and are proud of our strong community involvement.
You may have noticed our famous pink delivery truck in honor of breast cancer awareness. One of our biggest charitable events is the Superior Sally Propane Request. For every customer who requests delivery from our Superior Sally pink truck, Superior Energy will make a donation to one of our charities. To this day, it's one of our favorite endeavors.
That was the start of our current work in the community. Follow us on Facebook to see our current and past charity events, including pet adoptions and holiday toy drives. We take great pride in our hard work and dedication to our community involvement.

Arctic Splash Coat collection
Every year Superior Energy joins The Vernon Parks and Recreation Department to support their annual Send-A-Kid to Camp Fund. The 9th Annual Arctic Splash at Valley Falls Fundraiser fell on December 2nd this year. Superior also collected donations of coats to benefit The Cornerstone Foundation and those who donated coats and also registered for the Arctic Splash were entered into a special raffle for cash prizes provided by Superior. Over 50 coats were donated and Superior helped raise the funds to send the most kids to Summer Camp.
