ORGANIZATION: I Want To Mow Your Lawn Inc.

Help 55 yr old Wife and Husband with Disabilities in Fort Wayne, IN w/ Lawn Services as Volunteer. Both wife and her husband are disabled and need help with cutting grass. She had brain surgery and heart surgery so it's hard for her to do it. Her husband has 2 failed back surgeries and is diabetic, and he can't really feel his legs or feet and can only stand for a few minutes at a time. They had a niece come to do it but she can no longer help.

About I Want To Mow Your Lawn Inc.

Location:

PO Box 3572, Wayne, NJ 07474, US

Mission Statement

To preserve dignity, enable independence and build community by providing eco-friendly essential lawn service for the elderly, veterans and others in need.

Description

Founded in 2020, at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm) provides 100% free lawn-mowing to people over 65, military veterans, disabled, and under-resourced individuals / families - with green initiatives in mind. For I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm) founder, Brian Schwartz, laid off from a digital-advertising job, it was something to do, some way to help, at a time when everything in the world seemed upside down.

In time, demand grew - and other volunteers joined Brian. Currently, over 175 volunteers enlisted across 37 states have helped clean-up over 500 yards. For the people that I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm) is helping, the grass may not always be greener but it is cut, kempt, edged, and raked.

Media coverage of the organization across the globe to date has resulted in six times more volunteer enlistments for the 2022 spring-summer season.
