Student Starts Free Lawn Care Service For Elderly

This is the type of story that warms our hearts.  An Alabama A&M University student is offering free lawn care services to the elderly.

Rodney Smith Jr. said the objective of his service is to give back to elderly residents and single mothers in Huntsville and nearby cities.

“In my free time I cut grass for the homes of the elderly, disabled and single parent mothers,” Smith said on the GoFundMe page he created.

Now, what started out as a one-man production in 2015 has since evolved into a full-fledged service called Raising Men Lawn Care Service.

“The union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our young men and boys (young women and girls) on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society,” he wrote. “This has been my vision since I started with the first yard.”
