PEORIA, Ill. – Dave Vojta, owner of Spring-Green Lawn Care in Peoria, has been serving customers throughout his town and surrounding areas since 2004. When the devastating tornadoes hit southern Illinois on Sunday, Nov. 17, Vojta anxiously awaited an opportunity to help.

During a telethon held this week to raise funds for victims, Vojta matched $5,000 worth of public donations. He has also been involved with helping to clean up individual homes. “As a locally owned and operated neighborhood lawn care franchise, we take our commitment to community seriously,” said Ted Hofer, Spring-Green Lawn Care’s CEO. “We’re honored Dave has been able to help the victims of the recent storms.”

Vojta has over 23 years of experience in the lawn care industry, working for a national lawn care company, as a product supplier and as the owner of an independent lawn care operation before becoming a Spring-Green franchisee in 2004. Since taking ownership, Vojta has been building his client base throughout Washington, Chillicothe, Pekin and Peoria to include a number of well-known clients including the Peoria Chiefs, a minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.
