Project EverGreen is celebrating National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week May 15-21. The initiative raises awareness of the need to provide lawn care and landscape services to families of deployed military personnel and victims with service-related disabilities.

Since its inception in 2006, 10,000 military families and veterans have registered to receive services and 5,000 green industry professionals have signed up to help, according to the organization.

“These valuable services provide military families and wounded and disabled veterans with peace of mind and freedom to heal,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “A managed lawn and yard provides vital space for military personnel and veterans to recover and reconnect with their families.Our dedicated volunteers are a wonderful sense of support to our military families and veterans in their critical time of need and we are grateful for their leadership, as well as the continued support from The Toro Co.”

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program, and the second anniversary for its National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week.

To get the word out, Project EverGreen created a Promotional toolbox for its volunteers featuring tips for promoting their involvement with the initiative, a detailed infographic and 60-second promotional video which can be seen below.

The program is supported by the Toro Co.
