Project EverGreen announced the largest single donation in its history from the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), which contributed $104,000 to the non-profit organization.
In announcing the contribution, Project EverGreen Board President Chris Kujawa, CCLP, owner of Kujawa Enterprises, Inc., Oak Creek, WI, noted that this investment is a solid indication by the national organization representing landscape contractors and lawn care operators that it recognizes the need by the Green Industry to inform consumers about managed green spaces.
“It’s crucial Project EverGreen continue its goals of consumer education and information about the importance of managed green spaces,” Kujawa said. “Although we’ve only had our messaging out for a little more than three years, programs like GreenCare for Troops, our new initiatives with FFA, and our expansion into Canada and possibly Europe next year indicates we’re resonating with the Green Industry.”
Jason Cupp, CLP, PLANET board president and owner of Highland Outdoor, a design/build and landscape maintenance company in Olathe, Kansas, said, “PLANET is proud to support Project EverGreen’s mission to raise awareness about the benefits of green spaces and to promote the significance of those who preserve and enhance green spaces. Our partnership plays an important role in educating the consumer marketplace.”
