Welcome to Project EverGreen’s SnowCare for Troops program!
What is the SnowCare for Troops program?
SnowCare for Troops is a nationwide outreach program sponsored by Project EverGreen and our company to provide snow removal to families whose primary provider is currently deployed in the Armed Forces.
What is Project EverGreen?
Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization representing green industry service providers, associations, suppliers, distributors and individuals. Project EverGreen’s mission is to preserve and enhance green space in our communities for today and future generations.
Why is Project EverGreen involved in SnowCare for Troops?
Because many lawn and landscape contractors provide snow removal services in the off-season, it was a natural progression to begin this service and enhance Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program. GreenCare for Troops is the five-year-old nationally-recognized service created by Project EverGreen that provides lawn and landscape service to military families where the primary provider is currently deployed in the Armed Forces. After inquiries from several GreenCare for Troops volunteers about adding off-season snow removal, Project EverGreen and The BOSS Snowplow were able to get this program underway for the 2010-2011 snow season.
How can military families interested in participating register for the program?
What other types of programs does Project EverGreen sponsor?
Project EverGreen currently sponsors programs through its GreenCare for Troops, GreenCare for Communities and GreenCare for Youth outreach efforts. Please go to our website for more information.
