Rodney Smith Jr. Puts the “Care” in Lawn Care

Today’s lesson is about Rodney Smith Jr., a man who has dedicated his life to helping others through his nonprofit, “Raising Men and Women Lawn Care Service.” Despite facing challenges as an immigrant from Jamaica, being raised by a single mother, and his own teachers telling him that he would amount to nothing because of his learning disability, Smith has turned his life into an inspiring example of selflessness and kindness. Through his initiative, Smith provides free lawn care to the elderly, single parents, and veterans and is inspiring young men and women across America to rise to the challenge and mow lawns for free in their own communities.
