CLEVELAND, OHIO – Cub Cadet Commercial is a 2008 sponsor of Green Care for Troops, a national non-profit organization facilitated by Project EverGreen, to provide free lawn care for military families with loved ones overseas. Cub Cadet Commercial is sole financial underwriter for Green Care for Troops administration and coordination, but additional resources are still greatly needed.

In its third year, Green Care for Troops has grown to almost 6,000 families nationwide, with just 1,300 volunteers to support their lawn care needs.

“Green Care for Troops provides a small, but valuable service for military families,” says Nick Cashier, vice president of Cub Cadet Commercial. “For a professional landscaper or cutter, one lawn may take an hour or less every couple weeks, but for these families, it’s one less thing to worry about. This (year), we hope the green industry can keep these families in mind and find a way to lend a hand.”

Cub Cadet Commercial is encouraging its green industry colleagues to help out in any way they can. Support can come in any form, including:

? Adopt one or two families to maintain their lawns throughout the summer.

? Set up equipment loaner programs for citizen volunteers.
