GreenCare for Troops to Support Local Military Families
Green's Lawncare & Property Services of Indianapolis is proud to participate in the observance of a program that provides families of currently deployed military personnel as well as wounded and post 9/11 service-connected wounded/disabled veterans with complimentary lawn care and landscape services.
Studies have shown that access to well-maintained green spaces provide children with a safe place to play, exercise and compete, and connect with their community. Maintained green spaces also increase property values and provide individuals with the ability to actively participate in creating a greener, healthier, cooler Earth Green’s Lawncare & Property Services is one of thousands of lawn care and landscape professionals across the country that donates its services and time to ease the burden on military families or disabled and wounded veterans needing assistance.
“We’re proud to support the GreenCare for Troops program and lend a hand to help our local military families and veterans who already carry so much on their shoulders, the last thing they should be worrying about is fertilizing or mowing their lawn,” said Matt Green of Green’s Lawncare & Property Services. “It’s also our way of providing a safe and serene setting for families to unwind and enjoy.”
Since GreenCare for Troops was launched in 2006, more than 11,000 military families across the country have registered for the program and more than 6,000 lawn and landscape contractors have volunteered to provide more than $8 million in in-kind services. The program is supported by The Toro Company and Nufarm.
Green’s Lawncare & Property Services is urging interested military families and veterans to register for participation in the GreenCare for Troops program by calling Project EverGreen at (888) 611-2955 or registering online at www.projectevergreen.org.
