The annual giving program aims to help nonprofits successfully maintain their green spaces.
BEATRICE, Neb. – Exmark and the Toro Giving Program donated three Lazer Z zero-turn mowers to local organizations in need of lawn-maintenance machines.
“Exmark and the Toro Giving Program are in a unique position to give back to the communities in which we work and play,” said Rick Olson, general manager of Exmark. “These organizations are very deserving and we’re proud to help them.”
The three nonprofit organizations – Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation, Blue Springs Cemetery Association, and the Odell American Cemetery Association – will each use the mowers to maintain their green spaces and manage rising lawn care costs more effectively.
• Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation will use their Lazer Z for the more than 20 acres surrounding the newly built hospital.
• The Blue Springs Cemetery Association is responsible for maintaining the community’s more than 150-year-old cemetery that covers more than 12 acres.
• The Odell American Cemetery will use their Lazer Z as a cost-effective solution to hiring sometimes expensive grounds crews.
President of the Blue Springs Cemetery Association, Gale Hardin, said his group would use the new mower to replace one that was ruined by a fire last year. At an event last week, he said “This really fits the ticket for our cemetery.”
Each mower is valued at nearly $10,600.
