Project EverGreen’s National SnowCare for Troops Awareness Week is coming up Nov. 8-14. The program is in its sixth season of snow and ice removal for military families.
SnowCare for Troops provides free snow and ice removal for both wounded and disabled veterans and families of deployed military members.
Project EverGreen works with Boss Snowplows to pair these families with volunteers and snow-removal professionals who will clear snow and ice.
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, more than 3.6 million veterans have a service-related disability that creates a need for household and lifestyle assistance. Meanwhile, more than 160,000 U.S. military personnel are currently deployed in 150 countries.
Under the SnowCare for Troops program, Project EverGreen sends out a list of contractors who are within a 30-mile radius to the military families who have signed up for snow removal. The family then contacts one of the listed volunteers to receive service.
Volunteering companies decide how many families they are able to help. If there are more families than they can care for, the volunteer can suggest contacting another participating contractor or request that Project EverGreen recruit more contractors in the area.
