Project EverGreen is looking for volunteers for two of its key nationwide programs that serve military families and disabled veterans.

“Volunteers are the heart and soul of our programs,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “By providing these valuable services, military families gain peace of mind as well as a serene yard to get outside and unwind.”

The events, GreenCare for Troops and SnowCare for Troops, match green industry volunteers with families of deployed military personnel and post 9/11 veterans with service-connected injuries or disabilities to lend a much appreciated and welcome hand.

Volunteers help provide free lawn and landscape services—such as mowing, tree trimming, weeding and more—and snow removal to military families during the length of the service members’ deployment or registration period. This period is typically one year or less for deployed troops.

“It also often enables disabled veterans to remain in their homes while they focus on healing and re-connecting with their families,” said Code. “Please step up and join us in taking care of our nation’s heroes. Whether it is one family or multiple families, we appreciate your participation.”

Those who register to be a GreenCare or SnowCare for Troops volunteer by April 30 and agree to help at least one family in their area, will be entered into a drawing to win a $500 Home Depot gift card.
