As Project EverGreen’s SnowCare for Troops (SCFT) program enters its third season, the nonprofit organization is recognizing the more than 600 volunteers who support the campaign’s military families year-round by also offering landscaping services through GreenCare for Troops (GCFT). Both programs are managed by Project EverGreen and connect military families who have a spouse or family member currently deployed in the armed forces with snowplow and landscape professionals. SnowCare for Troops is a national program underwritten by THE BOSS Snowplow.
Before the first snowflakes fall this winter, Project EverGreen is urging its 4,000 volunteers supporting GCFT to also consider registering for the organization’s SnowCare for Troops program. New recruits are also welcome and can visit www.projectevergreen.com/scft to sign up.
SnowCare for Troops will build upon two successful seasons when snow arrives this winter. In its first two years, the program had 1,200 volunteers signed up to help more than 1,500 military families needing snow removal assistance. With nearly 1.5 million active duty military troops serving in the U.S. armed forces the need for volunteers is great. Entering its third season, SnowCare for Troops connects military families who have a spouse or family member currently deployed in the armed forces with snow removal and landscape professionals to provide free snow removal services.
In addition to volunteer participation, donations of money or gas cards as well as loans of snow removal equipment to volunteers and community groups are also needed.
