IRON MOUNTAIN, MI — 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), according to a press release.
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, the release stated.
SnowCare for Troops is a national program underwritten by THE BOSS Snowplow, the release noted.
"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.
According to the release, 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.
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, the release added.
