Project EverGreen announces a trio of awareness week designations intended to raise the profile and increase the understanding of the mission of each of these valuable programs. The observances will spotlight the efforts of the program’s volunteers and the military families, veterans and communities it serves.
The week-long celebrations of Project EverGreen’s three flagship programs – GreenCare for Troops, SnowCare for Troops and “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.™” will take place during the following weeks in May, July and November, respectively.
May 15-21, 2016 National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week
July 10-16, 2016 National “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” Awareness Week
November 6-12, 2016 National SnowCare for Troops Awareness Week
Project EverGreen will once again do a “full court press” promoting the awareness week celebrations with press releases to national, local and green industry media, infographics and volunteer promotional tool kits.
”Our programs strive to engage and motivate individuals and communities to work together to enhance yards, parks and green spaces,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Managed green spaces contribute to the safety and well-being of kids and adults, as well as a healthy cooling climate for the environment.”
Each awareness week will includes media campaigns to national, local and green industry media, infographics and volunteer promotional tool kits.
In 2015, Project EverGreen spearheaded renovation projects covering more than 250,000 square feet of managed green spaces with in-kind donations from professional contractors and suppliers totaling more than $100,000. In addition to the managed green space projects, Project EverGreen’s GreenCare and SnowCare for Troops volunteers delivered snow and ice removal, and lawn care and landscape services valued at $1 million to hundreds of military families and wounded/disabled veterans across the U.S.
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Project EverGreen (www.ProjectEverGreen.org) is a national non-profit organization committed to promoting the positive effects managed green spaces – including lawns and landscapes, athletic and recreational turf, golf courses and trees and parks – have on the physical, mental and economic well-being of communities across the United States.
