4,500 U.S. military families are asking for assistance from Project EverGreen's GreenCare for Troops to lift a burden by caring for their green spaces while their loved ones are in the armed forces. To the rest of us it is a simple task to care for our lawns/landscapes, most of the time, but for our U.S. military families at home it is the last task on their minds. We all know the economic and environmental lifestyle benefits of well maintained green spaces. It is our mission to assist them non-profit with this burden. More than 1,000 volunteers nationwide are assisting our families at home through GreenCare for Troops; 3/4 of which are affiliated with the green industry. In managing this national program for Project EverGreen I have the opportunity and honor to converse with our military families and soldiers daily...one military wife emailed me to thank us for our assistance and said, "It is so nice to know that there is someone on our side". Thank you Joy.
