Project EverGreen Announces 2017 Awareness Week Dates
Cleveland, Ohio — Project EverGreen announces a trio of awareness week designations intended to raise the profile of each of its valuable programs and increase the understanding of the mission of Project EverGreen. The observances will spotlight the efforts of the program’s volunteers and the military families, veterans and communities it serves.
Project EverGreen’s mission is: Bringing people together to make a difference in how our yards, parks and communities create a greener, healthier, cooler Earth. Its vision is: Greener, cooler Earth. Healthier, happier people.
The week-long celebrations of Project EverGreen's three flagship programs – GreenCare for Troops, SnowCare for Troops and “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.” will take place during the following weeks in May, July and November, respectively.
June 11-18, 2017
National GreenCare for Troops Awareness Week
July 16-21, 2017
National "Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids." Awareness Week
November 5-11, 2017

Project EverGreen will once again do a "full court press" promoting the awareness week celebrations with press releases to national, regional and local media, infographics and volunteer promotional tool kits.
”Our programs strive to engage and motivate individuals and communities to work together to enhance yards, parks and green spaces,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Managed green spaces contribute to the safety and well-being of kids and adults, as well as a healthy cooler Earth.”
Project EverGreen led renovation projects have renovated more than 1.6 million square feet of athletic and recreational greens spaces across the country with in-kind donations from professional contractors and suppliers totaling more than $1 million
In addition to the managed green space projects, Project EverGreen’s GreenCare and SnowCare for Troops volunteers delivered snow and ice removal, and lawn care and landscape services valued at $1 million to hundreds of military families and wounded/disabled veterans across the U.S. in 2016.
