I ran across a link to an inspiring story a couple days ago. Recognizing that the sacrifices that the families of our armed services members make, and all of the difficulties that come with someone being away from home for months or years at a time, the Fox Cities of Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association stepped up. By teaming their resources they have been able to make life a little easier (and more beautiful) for the loved ones that are left behind. I imagine that this is not a unique situation – that there are companies and organizations all across the country that are giving back in a similar manner. This one just caught my eye due to the fact that I spent about three years working with members of this same organization by providing education through the Wisconsin Extension system. I’d love to hear of similar stories if you have them.
