At the point when Rodney Smith Jr. discovered that a 93-year-old lady in his community had been attempting to cut her own grass independent from anyone else, he knew he needed to do something.
He assembled a portion of the folks that are a piece of his Raising Men Lawn Care group and, not just did they cut her yard, they focused on cutting it for her each two weeks!
A picture of the young fellows with the lady has been circulating around the web.
Rodney began Raising Men in 2015 with an end goal 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.” Their goal is to help the individuals who don’t have the time or cash to deal with their yards themselves.
Since beginning the service, the gathering has cut more than 300 yards for the elderly, disabled, and single mothers in their community.
“I want to restore the importance and understanding of giving back to the community,” Rodney said. “I 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 I want to instill is no matter how young or old, small or tall they are or cultural background they come from, they are capable of whatever they put their mind to.”
