With a few more winter weather months ahead for most of the country, Boss Snowplow is encouraging snow and ice professionals to sign up for the SnowCare for Troops program, sponsored by Boss Snowplow.
Now in its eighth year, SnowCare for Troops pairs volunteer snow and ice removal contractors with local military families and disabled veterans in need of a helping hand. Over the last eight years over 1,500 of our nation’s heroes and their families have received removal services free of charge.
Created by national non-profit Project EverGreen, and modeled after the successful GreenCare for Troops program, SnowCare for Troops serves military families with an active deployment and veterans with a post-9/11 service connected disability. Those interested in services are encouraged to visit the web site for qualifying details.
The program is actively seeking volunteers willing to add a few more stops to their service routes for the remainder of this season. Volunteers are particularly needed in New York, Colorado, Alaska, Ohio and Maryland.
Troy Clogg, SnowCare for Troops volunteer and owner, Troy Clogg Landscape Associates, Wixom, Mich., explains the program best saying, “We volunteer for SnowCare for Troops because it relieves our military heroes of one more worry that they have when they are deployed away from home. The few minutes it takes our crews to plow their driveway or shovel a sidewalk is nothing to us in the scheme of all of the thousands of manhours we work in a year, but we know it means everything to them.”
