of $150,000 to Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program. The nationwide
program assists thousands of military families by providing basic lawn care and
yard maintenance while a family member is deployed.
The investment will help expand the impact
of the initiative and enable more lawn and landscape professionals with the
opportunity to give back to their community in a meaningful way.
Now in its 13th year, the GreenCare for
Troops initiative counts more than 6,000 industry professionals among those who
have registered to help more than 11,000 military families.
“Nufarm is proud to be a sponsor of
GreenCare for Troops and the good that it encompasses,” Nufarm Americas VP turf
and ornamental Sean Casey said. “Military families face many challenges when
their loved ones are deployed. GreenCare for Troops works nationwide to connect
them with complimentary lawn care services. It’s a great way for lawn and
landscape professionals to give back and help military families relieve stress
by coming home to a worry-free green yard. We encourage everyone to get
involved by donating, volunteering or spreading the word.”
“Nufarm’s ongoing overall support to this
incredibly worthwhile program is making a significant difference in the lives
of military families and professional lawn and landscape contractor volunteers
across the country,” Project EverGreen executive director Cindy Code said.
“This ardent support has helped this nationwide to build upon its success and,
ultimately, bring safe and healthy yards and landscapes to families in need of
relief and peace in a green setting.”
