Project EverGreen Kicks Off 2006 Program with Habitat for Humanity in Lawrence
On July 5, non-profit Project EverGreen began its 2006 lawn and landscape sponsorship of Habitat for Humanity at the Homewood homes in Lawrence. Local companies Paramount Landscaping and Campbell’s Sod donated and installed sod and shrubs. The purpose of the partnership is to promote the value of green spaces while simultaneously helping low-income families move into beautifully landscaped homes of their own.
“Watching the kids roll around on the sod with their parents really brought home how important green spaces are in America’s neighborhoods,” said Kim Heck, Project EverGreen representative and executive director of the Sports Turf Manager’s Association, one of Project EverGreen’s partner associations. “Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity not only accomplishes our mission as an organization, it connects us with people who do not take green spaces for granted.”
For photos of the lawn and landscape installation or to speak with a representative from Project EverGreen, Paramount Landscaping or Campbell's Sod, contact Katherine Brandenburg, (402) 437-0147.
