This seems to be a really nice idea. Has anyone heard of this or considered doing it?

It might also get you press attention.

That could work to your benefit. IF you wanted to do this, you would be the first one in your area which should guarantee you news coverage.

I do this for a young woman in our community. It is only one. My father, grandfather, and uncles are veteran's who served overseas. When I left that job she was holding her daughter. As a father of two, I looked at my son, 2, who was with me and I felt good. I would hope someone would help my family while I was in harms way.

Chad, that is very kind of you. I bet if you sent a letter to the paper about it, they would write a story on this. It's a very nice story to share, especially during the holidays.

That is very kind of you.

Can you tell us a little how you got involved in that program and what an lco would do to get involved?

How is a family chosen for the lawn care?
