It’s important to note that next week – Jan. 24-30 – is National SnowCare for Troops Awareness Week, which will spotlight the valuable work being performed by hundreds of dedicated professional snow and ice volunteers across the country.

Now in its 11th year, SnowCare for Troops has evolved into more than just a service to clear driveways and sidewalks of snow and ice. It’s a lifeline for military families to help maintain their independence and go about their daily routines taking care of family, work and school, and for essential healthcare professionals to carry on their vital work.

“The need to assist military families, healthcare professionals and first responders serving overseas or on the front lines of the pandemic with snow removal services continues to grow, and SnowCare for Troops and the SCFT Cares for Our HealthCare Heroes initiatives will be there,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen, which oversees SnowCare for Troops and its sister warm-season initiative, LawnCare for Troops. “With the continued support of our thousands of volunteers and our program sponsor BOSS Snowplow, it’s our mission to continue grow the program and provide the support that many families need during these challenging times.”

The SCFT Cares for Our HealthCare Heroes program expansion runs through April 1, 2021.

BOSS supports SnowCare for Troops because the company has seen firsthand the impact it has on military families, says Mark Klossner, director of marketing, BOSS Snowplow. “We are grateful for our armed forces and the freedom we have because of their sacrifice,” he says. “This is one way we can show our support and appreciation.”

Many of you in the snow industry already participate in this program. But if you’re looking to get involved, CLICK HERE to visit the Project EverGreen website for more information and to register as a volunteer.
