'It’s easy to take the everyday things like snow shoveling for granted, but when these tasks fall to the family member left behind the added stress takes a toll,' said Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director.

Project EverGreen's SnowCare for Troops, a community-based program that matches contractor and citizen volunteers with military families, provides free snow removal services to troops in deployment. SnowCare for Troops (SCFT) is open to military families nationwide and is underwritten by BOSS Snowplow.
SCFT was established to help ease the burden during the winter months for the nation’s 175,000 active-duty troops serving overseas. With today’s U.S. military characterized by leaner forces and longer deployments, this places increased stress on the family members left to manage household tasks on the home front.
Now in its fourth year, the SCFT campaign currently has about 3,750 families and 1,400 volunteers signed up to participate in the program nationwide. Project EverGreen matches registered military families with local volunteers to provide free snow removal services. Military families and volunteers who want to join the campaign can sign up online by visiting
In addition to volunteer participation, donations of money or gas cards as well as loans of snow removal equipment to volunteers and community groups are also welcome.
“We’re very grateful for the generous underwriting support our friends at BOSS Snowplow have given to help ensure military families are taken care of,” said Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director. “It’s easy to take the everyday things like snow shoveling for granted, but when these tasks fall to the family member left behind the added stress takes a toll. Through SnowCare for Troops and our dedicated volunteer network that’s one small burden lifted from their shoulders.”
