HIGH PRIORITY: Help 67 yr old Disabled Woman in Fairfield, OH w/ Lawn Services (equipment provided). From client, " I am in desperate need. The utilities in WV are so high that by the time I've paid my electric and water, I'm broke. Lawn care is also very expensive, the cheapest company wants almost $200 and the fines will be $1000. I have had a stroke, MS and A-Fib, my 10 year old grand son isn't old enough to cut grass, my daughter was recently diagnosed with Lupus and is paralyzed in her left leg from an on-the-job injury she received while working as an LPN, and my son is bed fast due to several medical conditions. I am in desperate need of help. I know you don't have any volunteers in my area but anything even an idea of someone else to reach out to anything. If I end up in jail I don't know who will care for my children and grandchild. Thank you."

She has received a violation notice from the city due to her overgrown lawn.

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.
