Like Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops, I Want to Mow Your Lawn provides complimentary lawn mowing services to senior citizens, military veterans, disabled and under-resourced individuals and families.
Through the alliance, Project EverGreen and I Want to Mow Your Lawn will work to raise the profile and availability of their programs to fill current gaps and the opportunity for new volunteers to give back to their communities.
“Forming an alliance to help more military families, veterans and other deserving individuals made sense for many reasons,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Our two organizations together can cast a wider net and help more families and individuals enjoy all the benefits healthy, accessible green spaces have to offer.”
Both non-profits serve a nationwide audience and collectively will strive to expand the bandwidth and awareness of both programs, as well as push to bring in new volunteers.
These initiatives provide the platform for individuals and businesses with the skills and bandwidth needed to maintain healthy lawns, which in turn can deliver peace of mind to families during times of stress such as deployments or rehabbing from a service-related injury.
“We’re honored to officially partner with Project EverGreen to create synergies between our two organizations,” says Brian Schwartz, who founded I Want to Mow Your Lawn in 2020. “The partnership will multiply efforts to provide relief for families of active military and give back to those who have proudly served our country. It’s our way to say thank you for the service and sacrifices families make to protect our freedoms. We never take that for granted.”
