Two nonprofit organizations that offer mowing services to certain groups are teaming up.
Project EverGreen, which offers free basic lawn care and maintenance services to military personnel, and I Want to Mow Your Lawn, a nonprofit that provides lawns services to the elderly, military veterans and others, are teaming up to "expand their bandwidth" and offer more services to more people.
According to the two groups:
“Forming an alliance to help more military families, veterans and other deserving individuals made sense for many reasons,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Our two organizations together can cast a wider net and help more families and individuals enjoy all the benefits healthy, accessible green spaces have to offer.”
These initiatives provide the platform for individuals and businesses with the skills and bandwidth needed to maintain healthy lawns, which in turn deliver peace of mind to families during stressful times such as deployments or rehabbing from a service-related injury. The alliance will work to raise the profile and availability of the programs to fill current gaps and the opportunity for new volunteers to give back to their communities.
“We’re honored to officially partner with Project EverGreen to create synergies between our two organizations. The partnership will multiply efforts to provide relief for families of active military and give back to those who have proudly served our country,” said Brian Schwartz, founder of I Want to Mow Your Lawn. “It’s our way to say thank you for the service and sacrifices families make to protect our freedoms. We never take that for granted.”
