YardScapes, Inc. in partnership with Project EverGreen will again participate in “GreenCare for Troops” in the greater New Milford area. Project EverGreen is a nationwide outreach program initiated to connect local area lawn and landscape firms with families of the men and women serving their country in the armed forces.
“Lawn and landscape maintenance,” explains YardScapes founder Shayne Newman, “becomes a definite hardship when a family’s primary source of income is on active duty and away from home.” While participation is limited, Newman encourages eligible families to contact YardScapes, Inc. to apply for its services.
“By maintaining a healthy lawn and property, we hope to contribute to the families’ overall well being during a very stressful time in their lives. It’s a sincere gesture of support.”
Based in Minnesota, Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization that represents green industry service providers, associations, suppliers, distributors, media companies, and other organizations and individuals. Its mission is to raise awareness of the environmental, economic and lifestyle benefits of landscapes, and promote the significance of those who preserve and enhance green spaces at home, work and recreation.
Military families interested in applying for supportive lawn care services can contact “GreenCare for Troops” directly toll free at (877) 758-4835, or apply on line to Project EverGreen www.projectevergreen.com.
