SnowCare for Troops volunteers help families by providing snow removal services.

Winter is fast approaching, bringing cold weather and plenty of snow. Clearing driveways and sidewalks of snow and ice can be a hardship for many military families when one of the primary heads of household is not there.

Project EverGreen, Cleveland, in partnership with BOSS Snowplow, Iron Mountain, Michigan, is once again teaming up to make a difference this winter by encouraging snow management professionals to register to become a volunteer with Project EverGreen SnowCare for Troops.

Now in its ninth year, the program matches volunteers from all states with families within their service area to provide snow removal service to the families of deployed military personnel. The program is intended to help military families maintain their independence and go about their daily routines taking care of family, work, school and more.

“SnowCare for Troops provides military families in need with peace of mind and lifts a significant burden from their plates,” says 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 leadership they have demonstrated in support of military families goes above and beyond the call of duty.”

Nov. 11-17, 2018 is National SnowCare for Troops Awareness Week and is intended to raise awareness about the initiative and spotlight the efforts of the program’s volunteers and the military families they help. Throughout the week, profiles and stories will be shared via social media.
