LawnAmerica has always been involved in the Tulsa community; it's part of what we do. We believe in giving back to the communities we live and work in. This giving philosophy comes from our company values, which state that we are stewards of what God has given us, including our business. Therefore, we give back as much as we can towards causes which improve the lives of people in Tulsa, and even around the world.
For example, in 2009, LawnAmerica sponsored and built a Habitat for Humanity home in North Tulsa. Not only did our little company raise the $65,000 needed to fund the home, our staff voluntered every weekend to complete the home for the Bell family in late fall of 2009. We paid for and built a little league basefall field at the Hutcherson YMCA in 2010. In 2012, LawnAmerica sponsored and built another home for Habitat for Humanity. This home was dedicated in December of 2012, located in the Crutchfield Neighborhood just north of downtown Tulsa.
In 2013, one of our projects was the construction of a large raised bed vegetable garden at Fairmont Terrace in the 61st & Peoria neighborhood. The tennants of this property are in great need of many things and have been experiencing problems with crime for some time. With the help of master gardeners from Oklahoma State University, we built a beautiful garden for tennants to grow their own vegetables. They enjoyed great success in the summer of 2013, with a bounty of good food to share and eat. The garden has helped to instill a sense of pride into the commuity, and has helped bring together people and kids in working together towards good.
We give back a good share of our company profits to area non-profits, churches, schools, and comminity organizations, along with donated services. Our annual goal is to give back 3% of gross sales to our community and beyond. So when our customers do business with LawnAmerica, they are also helping to make our community and the world a better place to live.
