Raising Men Lawn Care Service mows lawns, rakes leaves and removes snow for FREE for the elderly, disabled, single-parent mothers and veterans. An integral aspect of RMLS is to include young men and women, ages 7-17, to teach them the importance and understanding of giving back to the community. We want to show our children (our future) that by helping others they too will receive a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, moral value and purpose in 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, comradery, leadership and listening skills.

 
 All funds rasied will go towards:

Gas, to get to the lawns we do as well as for the mowers

T-Shirts for the kids.When kids 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 earn a blue shirt, 40 a red shirt and 50 a black shirt.Once they reach 50, they become a lot a black belt at mowing lawns.

Food for the kids while we are out. During the summer time especially, we have the kids out everyday and we feed them lunch. We also provide them with water and snacks

We also use the funds for lawn mower up keep as well
