In recognition of National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week, which will take place June 9-15, Project Evergreen’s GreenCare for Troops issued a call for volunteers to register to help meet the growing number of military families requesting services. It hopes to raise awareness with military families, and encourages eligible personnel to register to receive services.

GreenCare for Troops marks its 13th year in 2019 and has seen more than 11,000 military families register to receive an estimated $8 million in donated lawn care and landscape services from more than 6,000 green industry professionals.

“GreenCare for Troops is more than a program that checks a box and takes care of a necessary service, it has become a transformative experience for both volunteers and recipients,” said Cindy Cole, executive director of Project Evergreen. “Not only do our volunteers provide a valued service and relieve a burden, but they are also allowing military families to benefit from two powerful forces — their families and nature.”
