Nufarm makes $150K donation to GreenCare for Troops

August 24, 2017 -  By

Nufarm is once again putting its support behind Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops, this time by contributing $150,000 to the program.

In 2015, Nufarm supported the program—which provides free lawn and landscaping services to help families of active-duty military members serving away from home—by donating $15 to GreenCare for Troops for select product purchases.

“Nufarm is keenly aware of the importance of community outreach and involvement. GreenCare for Troops embodies Nufarm’s core values, and allows us to put them in action in real-life situations,” said Sean Casey, Nufarm vice president, sales, turf and ornamental. “I can’t think of a better way to extend the outreach and community involvement of Nufarm employees than to help volunteers provide complimentary lawn and landscape services to the families of deployed military personnel and post-9/11 disabled veterans.”

The contribution will be used to enhance and expand the national initiative created and managed by nonprofit Project EverGreen. This will include increased outreach for volunteer recruitment and communications to families, volunteers and the media, as well as adding promotional and logistical resources required to grow the GreenCare for Troops database and serve more military families and veterans.

“Nufarm’s incredible contribution to this program is going to make a significant difference to the lives of military families and veterans across the country,” said Project EverGreen Executive Director Cindy Code. “This boost is just what the program needs to build upon its success and, ultimately, bring safe and healthy yards and landscapes to families in need of relief and peace in a green setting.”

The GreenCare for Troops initiative has seen more than 11,000 military families and disabled veterans and more than 6,000 green industry professionals register to receive or provide these services since the program was launched in 2006.

In 2016, Project EverGreen’s GreenCare and sister program SnowCare for Troops volunteers delivered lawn care and landscape services valued at $1 million to hundreds of military families and wounded/disabled veterans across the U.S.

Nufarm joins Toro as primary financial supporters of the GreenCare For Troops program.
