Gina Bizoukas, who has been with GreenCare for Troops since 2007, says the program is great because lawn care is one less thing for families to worry about. "I wish more people knew about (GreenCare for Troops) and would get involved," she says.
Currently, the program has 1,300 volunteers and hopes to expand. While most of the volunteers come from landscape contractors, families and schools are encouraged to help out.
The program, which has assisted 5,000 families, hopes to reach its goal of 8,000 families by the end of this year.
