Calling All Contractors!
“Unfortunately, we’ve seen some of our volunteers have to pull out of the program or reduce their involvement [because of the labor crisis],” says Program Manager Ki Matsko. “It’s important for [snow and ice management professionals] to realize anyone can participate in the program. While our core volunteers are landscape and snow contractors, anyone who’d like to help can get involved as a volunteer, as well.
“And if you’re a [snow or landscape] company that is struggling with labor issues, you can tell us the number of families you’re able to help this winter,” she says, adding there is no minimum quota to meet to participate in SnowCare. “Even if you can add just one military family onto a current service route, that’s going to make a huge difference. We always say, if every company just helped one family, what a huge difference [the program] could make.”
The SnowCare for Troops program, supported by BOSS Snowplow, assists military families of US service men and women by providing snow removal services to family members while they are deployed throughout the US and the world.
Since 2010, SnowCare for Troops has partnered with more than 1,500 snow removal volunteers to offer more than 5,000 military families with complimentary snow and ice removal services.
