NEW MILFORD, Conn. – YardApes, in partnership with Project EverGreen, will again participate in “GreenCare for Troops” in the greater New Milford area. Project EverGreen is a nationwide outreach program initiated to connect local area lawn and landscape firms with families of the men and women serving their country in the armed forces. 

 
“Lawn and landscape maintenance becomes a definite hardship when a family’s primary source of income is on active duty and away from home,” says YardApes founder Shayne Newman. “By maintaining a healthy lawn and property, we hope to contribute to the families’ overall well being during a very stressful time in their lives. It’s a sincere gesture of support.” 
 
Military families interested in applying for supportive lawn care services can contact GreenCare for Troops directly toll free at 877-758-4835, or apply online to Project EverGreen at www.projectevergreen.com
 
Based in Minnesota, Project EverGreen is a national non-profit organization that represents green industry service providers, associations, suppliers, distributors, media companies, and other organizations and individuals.
