National Program Seeks Volunteers and Recipients for Eighth Winter Season
Before the first winter blast, BOSS Snowplow invites snow and ice professionals and military families to learn more about SnowCare for Troops, a program that pairs volunteer snow and ice removal contractors with local military families and disabled veterans in need of a helping hand. In areas with regular ice and snowstorms, winter makes the routine of daily life even harder, especially for those dealing with a military deployment or service-related disability. Now in its eighth year, SnowCare for Troops has provided free snow and ice removal services for thousands of our nation’s heroes and their families, and they’re gearing up to do it again.
SnowCare for Troops was created by the national non-profit Project Evergreen and is modeled after their successful GreenCare for Troops program. It is open to military families across the country with an active deployment and veterans with a post-9/11, service connected disability. Those interested are encouraged to visit the web site for qualifying details and to sign up.
“SnowCare for Troops is more than clearing driveways and sidewalks of snow and ice. It is a way to ease the burden of deployments on military families and to help veterans with disabilities maintain their independence,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “We’re very grateful for the commitment of our dedicated volunteers and the continued support from BOSS Snowplow.”
The program actively seeks volunteers willing to add a few more stops to their winter service route this season. Volunteers provide complimentary snow and ice removal services to qualifying military families when they need it most. Interested volunteers can learn more online. Volunteers are particularly needed in Colorado, Alaska, Ohio and Connecticut.
“BOSS backs you up, and sponsoring the SnowCare for Troops program allows us to help those who need extra assistance to restore order after winter snowstorms,” said Mark Klossner, Marketing Vice President for BOSS Snowplow.
