At Horticulture Services one of our Core Values is that “We are Servants” as an organization we want to live out all elements of this core value. For this reason we have established a partnership with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) to support their organization through both monetary contributions and service projects.
At Horticulture Services we supply support to feed one child for a year for every $10,000 of value for any new landscape maintenance service agreement that is signed. If a new client signs on with us and the value of their agreement is $40,000, we will make a contribution to FMSC in their name that will feed four children for a year. We believe strongly in the mission of FMSC and are committed supplying them with ongoing support.
Additionally, each year we take a paid day off of our normal work and all employees go to FMSC’s facility to pack food. This experience is always a highlight for our employees as we get to compete with each other to see who can pack the most food. It is fun activity and we get to do participate in feeding a lot of children in the process. And let’s not kid ourselves; a bunch of landscapers can package a lot of food in a short amount of time.
