Clearing driveways and sidewalks of snow and ice is a hard job under the best of circumstances. Imagine if you were the spouse of a deployed soldier, sailor or airman in a city where you had no family and had to get two young kids out the door to school and you needed to get to work, and there was three inches of heavy snow in the driveway?
This is where Project EverGreen’s SnowCare for Troops program delivers a helping hand and peace of mind for the families of deployed military personnel.
January 19-25, 2020 is National SnowCare for Troops Awareness Week and will shine a spotlight on the program’s dedicated volunteers, the families they bring relief to and the need for more volunteers to join the cause.
The SnowCare for Troops program, which is supported by BOSS Snowplow, is more than clearing driveways and sidewalks of snow and ice. It’s a means to help military families maintain their independence and go about their daily routines taking care of family, work, school and more.
“BOSS Snowplow continues its support of the SnowCare for Troops program because we have seen firsthand the impact it has on military families,” said Mark Klossner, director of marketing, BOSS Snowplow. “We are grateful for our armed forces and the freedom we have because of their sacrifice. This is one way we can show our support and appreciation.”
Celebrating its 10th year, the need for SnowCare for Troops volunteers remains strong. With military deployments occurring regularly across the U.S., new volunteers are needed to provide snow removal service to the families of deployed military personnel. Volunteers are matched with families within their service area.
“SnowCare for Troops provides military families in need with peace of mind and lifts a significant burden from their plates,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “We’re very grateful for the commitment of our dedicated volunteers and the continued support from BOSS Snowplow. The leadership they have demonstrated in support of military families goes above and beyond the call of duty.”
Project EverGreen also sponsors the GreenCare for Troops program that offers complimentary lawn care and basic landscape services for families of deployed military personnel.
