KENVIL, NJ (Morris County) – Fullerton Grounds Maintenance (FGM), a leading provider of landscape services in central and northern New Jersey, is volunteering free landscaping services this summer to select military families in Morris, Bergen and Passaic counties. Teaming up with Project EverGreen, a non-profit dedicated to providing military families with free lawn and landscape services, FGM is committed to giving back to our finest heroes.
Since 2018, Fullerton Grounds Maintenance has assisted families with their landscape needs through Project EverGreen’s Greencare for Troops program. This year, the company is helping four deployed families. Fullerton Grounds Maintenance’s involvement in the project originated from a personal connection between the program’s mission and FGM’s CEO and Founder Scott Fullerton.
“My daughter is part of the armed forces so I have a deep connection and understanding of some of the challenges military families face,” Fullerton said. “Fullerton Grounds Maintenance has a long history of participating in charitable causes and when we learned about Project EverGreen, we jumped at the opportunity to get involved. It allows us to help these special men and women by applying our trade and doing what we do best.”
Currently, FGM has committed to servicing family properties throughout the Kenvil, NJ area – offering free services that include lawn cutting, edge trimming, maintenance of shrubbery, and more.
Military families face many challenges when a loved one is deployed. Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops was founded in 2006 to ease the burden on the families of deployed military personnel by providing the gift of healthy, healing lawns and landscapes for military families to find solace. These complimentary services are provided by professional volunteers for the length of deployment. The program is needs based for active-duty deployed service members and includes all military branches.
It is Fullerton Grounds Maintenance’s hope to inspire more landscaping companies to get involved with the program and make a difference in the lives of military families. “This is a meaningful way we can give back to these men and women who sacrifice so much for us and our country,” Fullerton said.
