'Thank you!' to Our Military Families
Robbins Landscaping Team helps the Autry family!
Robbins Landscaping, Inc. greatly appreciates the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform and their families. We recognize the depth of their contributions to our country and thus hope to offer support to individual military families with our time and expertise.
Each year Robbins Landscaping, Inc. (like many other landscaping companies across the country) works with GreenCare for Troops http://www.projectevergreen.com/gcft/ to find a local family with at least one spouse actively serving abroad. Robbins then offers that family lawn maintenance services until the serving spouse returns home in an effort to ease the burden of the spouse that is maintaining the family's home.
This year, in addition to providing routine maintenance for an actively serving family, Robbins Landscaping teamed with GreenCare for Troops to find a new family for whom we could provide a Spring clean up and some mulching and shrub care. With the help of GCFT, we found the Autry family!
Mr. Autry is currently serving as a Captain in the U.S. Army and is stationed abroad until Thanksgiving. He has been deployed before and will have been gone for nearly a year when he returns in November 2010. Mrs. Autry is at home with their three young sons. In addition to raising their family, Mrs. Autry volunteers a great deal of her time with the Family Readiness Program on base as a group leader; she organizes meetings, parties, and events to help other military families to prepare for and manage a spouse's active service.
Robbins Landscaping, Inc. wants to recognize the Autry family as a wonderful example of a selfless family who sacrifices much for our country. Many, many thanks to the Autrys!
