“It’s important for military families to enjoy healthy yards and lawns and to come together as a family during times of uncertainty when a member is deployed. GreenCare for Troops allows volunteer companies to maintain the turf and health of the family’s yard which supports Project EverGreen’s mission. Quality turf provides the Earth with carbon sequestration and clean air for families and their neighborhoods.”

SiteOne Landscape Supply and Project EverGreen have announced a new incentive to attract and retain volunteers for the GreenCare for Troops (GCFT) program which provides complimentary landscape and lawn care services to families of deployed military personnel.
Volunteers who register with the GreenCare for Troops program in 2023 and agree to help at least one military family with free lawn and landscape services will be rewarded a single use $250.00 discount coupon toward products purchased in-person at any SiteOne’s 630 stores in the United States.
“It’s important for military families to enjoy healthy yards and lawns and to come together as a family during times of uncertainty when a member is deployed,” said Kevin Laycock, director, category management at SiteOne Landscape Supply and current board president of Project EverGreen. “GreenCare for Troops allows volunteer companies to maintain the turf and health of the family’s yard which supports Project EverGreen’s mission. Quality turf provides the Earth with carbon sequestration and clean air for families and their neighborhoods.”
The GCFT program has matched lawn and landscape professionals with deployed military families for 17 years. It’s a natural way for landscape companies to share their knowledge and skills of healthy yards and landscapes with military families during a stressful time. By providing a safe and healthy yard for families to relax and play, military families enjoy the environmental and health benefits of a greener, cooler neighborhood and community.
“Project EverGreen is appreciative of the ongoing support SiteOne has provided to the GreenCare for Troops program and our volunteers who provide these important services to military families at no charge,” said Project EverGreen Executive Director Cindy Code. “This discount coupon helps support the efforts of the volunteers who are so generous with their time and resources.”
Project EverGreen will send new volunteers an email verifying their SiteOne account has been loaded with the coupon. Volunteers must be a professional lawn and landscape contractor and a registered SiteOne customer to redeem the coupon. If volunteers do not have an account, registration is free and can be done at https://www.siteone.com/request-account/form
