I thought I would psot this not for sure if I shoud have put it in the off topic post but here it goes.

I seen this on the Boss snowplows web site and thought it was very interesting. So I thought I would post it on here to see what kind of respones It would get. Also to see who else on here would be interested in signing up to this on helping are Troops out !


THE BOSS Snowplow and Project EverGreen launch SnowCare for Troops New program brings together snow fighters to support military families. MORE >>

I feel it's for a very good cause anything to show our troops we are here for them. I'd hope Just because Boss is apart of it, it will not stop anyone else that thinks this would be a great cause on signing up to help out.

Hi guys
I saw your posts about SnowCare For Troops. We at BOSS are very excited to be part of the program. I agree that I hope that anyone that wants to participate does so! The biggest thing we need is for guys like you to help us pass the word about it -- again - its all volunteer based, so the more that know about it, hopefully the more that sign up to volunteer.

Volunteering for SnowCare is easy, just follow that link, and you will be taken to Project Evergreen's website. Their you will see a box, that says "Volunteer", you can do so as either a contractor or individual. Once you get to the next screen, you can click and see the Volunteer List, which will let you see who has volunteered already. You don't need to volunteer to see that list. Project Evergreen will take of everything for you - if someone in your area needs your help, they will coordinate directly with you - no hassles whatsoever. I should also point out that if you know of a military family that could use the help - they can also apply for it right on the same site!

Hopefully we'll see your names on the list soon!

Marketing Manager, BOSS Snowplows.

I signed up because I think it's a great idea and an easy and small way of helping out our troops while they are away defending our freedom.

MSS -- that's great to hear! Was the process easy? Did you check to make sure your name showed up on the Volunteer list? Let me know.

I'd also like to note that the SnowCare For Troops website updates the "Volunteer List" twice a week - so if you sign up and your name doesn't appear immediately, just hang in there.

Got my first request today from a Army Reservists that is having to ship out at the end of this week told him our company would be more then happy to assist him in clearing his driveway out this winter while he is serving for our counrty. I'm kind of dissapointed I whould have thought a few more people on here would have commented about wanting to sign up an help our troops out. There's been over 200 visits but only myself an three other's have posted their willingness to help out on here!! I think a lot of us on here can spare at least 15minutes of our time to help a military person out thats having to serve for this coming winter season for our freedoms!

I just signed up. I think it is a great idea, and I don't mind helping out at all.

I have been doing this for the past 3 yrs on my own. It really is a good feeling knowing you are doing something to help out but I am going to sign up on the site maybe get a few more. This is a great thing you guys are doing.

Hi Mark, this time of year Plowsite is very slow but when Sept gets here you will see more and more people sign up. Most of the guys are over on lawnsite right now. Might want to think about posting something on thw www.lawnsite.com in the off topic forum, my guess is you will got alot more response's.

Regards Mike

Hey guys What a great idea. Some here know my son is active with the 3-10 avg out of drum. He is company commander of the air wing. On one of his deployments his 2 week return to the states was the dead of winter in watertown NY. Thanks to one of the guys on plowsite in watertown he was able to get his drive cleaned off for his return. Two feet of snow and refreez ice, cost me a few bucks but was worth it so he did not have to tackle that job just to get into his home after being gone for 6 mts. I just signed up and I see some guys here are on board. Lets Make This Happen !!!!! For us seasoned guys remember when people said thanks and would bring out coffee and food to us with a smile. Not like today where its everything negative about your work and more for less. I would love to see a smile from the window and a wave from someone I just helped. I give freebies all the time so what a better way to give back to the troops...

This is a great cause and I hope the word keeps spreading! I signed up right after SIMA symposium, after being informed by Boss of their intentions. Hopefully the Boss dealers are helping spread the word too! Lets keep this going!
