Last month I told you about our exciting social enterprise project to start a lawn care business that will provide employment opportunities to those living in ECM target neighborhoods. I wanted to send you an update about what has transpired in the past month, so continue reading to learn more about where we are in the process of launching!
We Have a Name!
Our new business is going to be called Extreme Yard Care! We are working on getting a website together, so stay tuned.
We Are Still Looking for a Program Manager!
We are still looking for someone to fill the Extreme Yard Care Program Manager position – an individual who wants to use his/her talents and experience to help bring this vision to life and to help the community in this flexible, seasonal role. See the full job description here. If you know someone who would be a good fit for this position, can you please share this information with them?
We Will Be Launching a Crowdfunding Campaign!
In order to procure the necessary equipment (a truck, trailer, mowers, edgers, trimmers, and other supplies) to get started with this business, we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise $20,000. We will be launching the campaign next week, so stay tuned for those details about how you can help Extreme Yard Care get started.
We Will Need Customers!
Help our business have jobs to do by being one of our customers. If you would like to receive details about the services and pricing available through our lawn care / yard service social enterprise, let us know how to get in touch with you and we will keep you posted.
