IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich.— Looking for a way to help out in the community this winter? Join Project EverGreen’s SnowCare for Troops, a non-profit program entering its second year that matches volunteers with military families serving overseas to provide free snow removal services. SnowCare for Troops is underwritten by THE BOSS Snowplow.
Following a successful launch last year, Project EverGreen hopes to double participation in SnowCare for Troops during the 2011-12 snow season. Nearly 1,000 volunteers have already joined clearing snow from driveways and sidewalks for military families with a spouse or family member serving in the armed forces.
“SnowCare for Troops got off to a roaring start and we’d like to thank BOSS Snowplow for their generous funding support,” said Project EverGreen Executive Director Cindy Code. “Growing demand from local military families means many more volunteers are needed. When a loved one is serving away from home, having the added burden of snow removal lifted from the shoulders of the one left behind is a priceless gift.”
It’s easy to support the SnowCare for Troops program by:
* Offering free snow removal services throughout the winter to one or two families in your community;
* Loaning snow removal equipment to volunteers or groups;
* Donating money, transportation or gas cards to offset snow removal and maintenance costs; and
* Referring friends and/or military families to sign up for the program.
SnowCare for Troops is open to anyone with a plow or other snow removal equipment who wants to lend a neighborly hand.
“The response to SnowCare for Troops from caring community members and military families has been tremendous,” said Mark Klossner, marketing director for THE BOSS Snowplow. “We want to thank everyone who gave countless hours in heavy snow, sleet and ice to back up our country’s selfless military families this past winter and we hope they’ll be back this year.”
Project EverGreen’s SnowCare for Troops and its sister program GreenCare for Troops are serving thousands of military families through a national network of lawn care, landscape and snow care professionals and volunteers dedicating thousands of service hours to military families.
