Veterans Day: Grasshopper donates zero-turn mower
Wounded veteran receives zero-turn mowerGrasshopper presented a¬†zero-turn mower to Steve Ellsberry, a retired combat-wounded Army Staff¬†Sergeant from¬†Jacksonville, Fla.¬†Grasshopper partnered with¬†Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF) and comedian Jeff Foxworthy on the donation. It¬†is the second zero-turn mower that the company has donated in as many years; the first was in 2013. Grasshopper and MWSF presented Ellsberry with his new Grasshopper zero-turn mower during a turkey hunt at Foxworthy's Georgia farm in mid-April. The hunt and presentation is the subject of the¬†May 5 episode of Foxworthy's online web series Foxworthy Outdoors: Inside & Out. Read more about 2014 zero-turn mower recipient Steve Ellsberry.
Grasshopper donates profits to¬†Military Warriors Support FoundationIn addition to donating a zero-turn mower to a veteran every year, Grasshopper donates 100 percent of the profits from every sale of¬†co-branded, camouflaged MWSF/Grasshopper gear¬†to MWSF. MWSF awards 100-percent mortgage-free homes to combat-wounded veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan through its ¬ďHomes4WoundedHeroes¬Ē program. Each selected recipient also receives three years of family and financial mentoring so that they can learn the skills necessary to become successful homeowners.
Now, do your part for our veteransYou don't have to donate a zero-turn mower. You can donate a small monetary gift to Military Warriors Support Foundation. Or, donate your time. Mow a veteran's¬†yard. Rake their leaves. Keep their sidewalk clear of snow. You could buy some MWSF/Grasshopper gear, something for you and something for them. Let them know they are not forgotten, that they have our respect and our thanks. Because they've earned it. Thank you, all you who have served our great nation!
