IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich., November 19, 2012 — As Project EverGreen’s SnowCare for Troops (SCFT) program enters its third season, the non-profit 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.

“It takes a very special person to give of their time and resources to back up our troops and their families and we want to thank our many landscape contractors and snow removal professionals who go the extra mile to make sure they’re taken care of throughout the year,” said Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director.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 http://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 has 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.

“We’re proud to support the SnowCare for Troops program and to lend a hand to help our nation’s military families who already carry so much on their shoulders,” said Mark Klossner, marketing director for THE BOSS Snowplow. “This program is our way of showing our military how much we appreciate their sacrifice and we want to thank everyone who continues to support the campaign as we kick off our third year. And if you’re a SCFT volunteer who hasn’t yet signed up for GCFT, we hope you’ll consider doing so.”

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.

Project EverGreen is a national nonprofit organization committed to informing the public about the positive effects of well-maintained green spaces, including lawns and landscapes, sports turf, golf courses, trees and parks. Its SnowCare for Troops program is modeled after its wildly successful sister program, GreenCare for Troops. In operation since 2006, GreenCare for Troops, underwritten by Cub Cadet, provides free lawn and landscape services to military families.
