Support Project EverGreen's SnowCare for military families this winter.

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.
