KEENKUT LANDSCAPING joins forces with GreenCare for Troops – Project EverGreen
KeenKut Landscaping is now partnering with GreenCare for Troops, a nationwide outreach program coordinated by Project EverGreen that connects local green industry professionals with men and women serving our country in the armed forces away from home. GreenCare is in the process of helping more than 2,400 volunteers provide free lawn and landscape services for more than 9,000 military families nationwide. The cost to manage the GreenCare for Troops Program is underwritten by Cub Cadet Commercial.
U.S. Troops serving in the Middle East show their appreciation for Project Ever Green's initiative "GreenCare for Troops"
Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization whose most important mission is to provide free lawn care to U.S. military families at home while their loved ones serve in the Armed Forces. This is one small burden that together we can bear during this difficult time.
To date, we are in the process of connecting 9,000 military families with 2,400 volunteers currently registered with our program.
Project EverGreen's "GreenCare for Troops" needs more volunteers, and we ask for your help. If you can serve just one family by mowing a lawn, please contact us through our website www.projectevergreen.com or call (toll-free) 877-758-4835.
Our military families thank you for your care and support!

GreenCare for Troops is a nationwide outreach program initiated by Project EverGreen that connects participating landscape maintenance professionals and citizen volunteers with families of the men and women away from home serving our country in the Armed Forces. Lawn and Landscape maintenance becomes a definite hardship when a military family's primary breadwinner is on active duty away from home. GreenCare for Troops seeks to ease this burden by helping affected families with the important task of caring for their yard and landscape. Landscape professionals, and citizen volunteers donate their services to the military families for one year or deployment time.
Based in New Prague, Minnesota Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization representing the green industry service providers, associations, suppliers, distributors, and individuals. The link between the families and the volunteers is done at the Project EverGreen headquarters. If a volunteer is located in the area of a military family, the military family is contacted by telephone or email with the volunteer's information. It is the military family's responsibility (due to confidentiality of the family's information) to contact the volunteer. Due to the number of military families and volunteers participating and our skeleton staff, a participating military family will hear from GCFT only when we have a volunteer to assist them.
Receiving free lawn care service depends on the volunteers in areas of need; this service is not guaranteed in all areas, but we make every effort to accommodate as many families as we possibly can. If we do not have volunteers in areas every effort is made to recruit by phone.
To date, we have more than 9,100 military families and more than 2,400 volunteers throughout the United States registered with our program. To participate as a family in need of lawn care, or to volunteer to ease this burden for a military family, please complete and submit a simple on-line registration form which can be found on our website www.projectevergreen.com/gcft Due to the overwhelming response of our military families throughout the United States we are in need of more volunteers. Donations welcome.
