Raising Men Lawn Care Service is an organization designed to promote community awareness for our future (boys and girls ages 7-17). This program is a platform for our youth to give back to those in need who are single mothers, veterans, elderly and those who are disabled, by mowing ,raking lawns and shoveling snow from their driveways for FREE. Our kids gain a variety of valuable lawn care and social skills, which enables and influences them to pass along the keys of charitable giving to the next generation.
Raising Men Lawn Care Service is the union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our youth on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society. RMLCS provides free lawn care to our elders, those who are disabled, single mothers, and our veterans, who do not have the time, resources and/or money to manicure their yards.
When your child joins the program, they start off with a white shirt. We have it set up similar to the karate system. For every 10 lawns cut, they get a new color shirt. Once they cut 10 lawns, they get an orange shirt; 20 lawns earns a green shirt; 30 lawns earns a blue shirt; 40 lawns earns a red shirt; and 50 lawns earns a black shirt. Once they reach 50, they become a lot like a black belt at mowing lawns.
We want to show our children (our future) that by helping others they too will receive a sense of accomplishment, and an increase in self-esteem, moral value, and purpose within themselves. The message we want to instill is no matter how young or old, small or tall, and regardless of cultural background, they are capable of whatever they put their mind to. From learning to use a lawn mower to raking leaves, we work to instill a deep sense and appreciation for team work, camaraderie, leadership, and listening skills.
