TruGreen has a lot to be proud of when it comes to charitable giving. Since the program’s inception, the company has donated more than $600,000 to various local and national charities such as St. Jude and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through its Lawn Stars corporate giving program.
Lawn Stars started as a competition several years ago as a fun way for branches to grow customer count. Each quarter, the TruGreen Lawn Stars program recognizes 21 local sales and service teams that lead their respective regions in customer growth. Each winning branch is supported in making a $2,000 donation to its chosen charity.
The organizations selected to receive corporate donations to charity from the current Lawn Stars program include:
· ASPCATruGreen feels strongly that as it grows as a business, we want stay involved and give back to the community to help others grow as well. As a result, this program reflects a "give back" element making it as much about community as it is about internal friendly competition with enticing prizes up for grabs. In addition to giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to the communities where TruGreen works and serves others, employees in winning Lawn Star branches have given thousands of hours of their personal time to volunteer in these communities.
"Overall, Lawn Stars exists to ensure TruGreen associates are supported and rewarded for doing the right thing-which aligns with our mission and values, and that customers remain a top priority,” said TruGreen Chief HR Officer, Wendy Radtke.
