Crider Landscaping Joins National GreenCare for Troops Movement to Support Local Military Families

Crider Landscaping of Chattanooga joins ranks with Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program, a program designed to provide lawn care and landscape services to families of currently deployed military personnel as well as post 9/11 service-connected wounded/disabled veterans at no charge.

Crider Landscaping will participate with lawn care and landscape professionals from across the country that donate their services and time to ease the burden on military families or disabled and wounded veterans needing assistance with services. 

“We’re proud to support the GreenCare for Troops program and lend a hand to help our local military families and veterans who already carry so much on their shoulders, the last thing they should be worrying about is fertilizing or mowing  their lawn,” said John Crider, Founder of Crider and Associates LLC.  “This is just one small way that we can say thank you for their dedication to country and military service.”

GreenCare for Troops was launched in 2007 and since its inception more than 10,000 military families and 4,000 lawn and landscape contractors have registered to receive or provide services.

“With more than 160,000 active-duty U.S. military personnel deployed in 150 countries across the globe, and significant numbers of wounded and disabled veterans, the need to support the families of those holding down the home front is significant,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen.

Crider Landscaping urges interested military families and qualifying disabled veterans to register for participation in the GreenCare for Troops program, online at www.ProjectEverGreen.org or calling Ki Matsko at 888/611-2955 for additional information.
