Iron Mountain, Michigan — A new national volunteer program supporting military families, Project EverGreen's SnowCare for Troops, provides community members with a meaningful way to give back to those serving our country. The national program is underwritten by THE BOSS Snowplow and brings together snowplow volunteers to provide free snow removal services for military families with a spouse or family member serving overseas in the armed forces.
"For our military families with loved ones serving away from home, help on the home front reduces stress and eases the burden shouldered by those left behind," Project EverGreen Executive Director Den Gardner says. "We would like to express our appreciation to THE BOSS Snowplow for putting military families first through this community-based volunteer program. This program is a natural extension of our nationally known GreenCare for Troops program, where free service is provided to military families in need of lawn and landscape services. Many of our volunteers in SnowCare for Troops also participate in GreenCare for Troops."
Following last year's harsh winter and record-breaking snowfalls, this grassroots initiative kicks off just in time for the winter snow season.
Honoring our troops is easy and volunteers can sign up for the program by visiting the Project EverGreen website or THE BOSS Snowplow website. Hundreds of local volunteers have already signed up for the Project Evergreen SnowCare for Troops program and many more volunteers are needed. "THE BOSS Snowplow is proud to offer our support to America's military families who are making the ultimate sacrifice," says Mark Klossner, marketing manager for THE BOSS Snowplow. "Anyone can get involved in this program, and more help is needed as we prepare for this winter's first snowfalls. We're so appreciative of the tremendous support this program is already generating in local communities and know that those who participate will get back so much more in return for their volunteer service."
There are many opportunities to join the ranks of Project EverGreen's SnowCare for Troops program, including:
● Adopting one or two families locally by providing snow removal services throughout the winter;
● Loaning snow removal equipment to volunteers or groups; and
● Donating money, transportation or gas cards to offset snow removal and maintenance costs.
The new SnowCare for Troops program joins the four-year program, GreenCare for Troops, managed by Project EverGreen that has already provided free lawn and landscape services to thousands of military families. This program now has more than 10,000 military families in its database and is supported by nearly 3,000 green industry professionals and volunteers.
