Every think about giving back a little? How about Mowing For Troops? Its non profit program.


GreenCare for Troops: Serving You While You Serve Us.

Green Care for Troops is a nationwide outreach program connecting local lawn and landscape firms with men and women serving our country in the armed forces away from home.

PNP Lawn Care is decated to helping Project EverGreen, to start a statewide program in FLORIDA to get many LawnCare Companys involed in this program.
This is great way to get involed and get your business promoted. You can contact your local news paper and get them involed. I have had 3 interviews with deffernt new papers and TV interview last year with Fox news.
Here is promo of News paper

Oh Rodman,

I didn't know you got media attention from them! You should screen capture the articles and get them on your site and save the pages too!

Here is one of the pages.

Rodman,

What did you do to get media attention on this project? Can you share with us the steps you took?

Also how does a lawn care operator find a member of the armed forces in their area to assist?

I sent the local news paper a email explaining to them what I was doing. They called for interview. If the lCO will go to Mowing For Trrops (http://www.mowingfortroops.org)
Website there will be a link there where they can sign up. And They will get a complete "MissionKit" from Ever Green Project they will do the matching for the local LCO. If they will please let them know they heard about the program from PNP LAWN CARE.
