Simply Safer Foundation
Simply Safer is committed to help improve the lives of the people in our community. We plan to achieve this by providing our organic lawn care (fertilizing, weed control, insect control) and seeding services to common areas (parks, athletic fields, and municipal lawns), church grounds, and to other non-profit organizations (such as Habitat for Humanity and GreenCare for Troops). We also donate directly to many local causes; some causes in donations of money, many others we donate gift cards to be raffled at their fundraising events.
The first target are common areas, this will serve to beautify the community which will benefit all who live there. We will also improve the condition of the turf that children play sports on and to do so in a way that eliminates chemical use and thus the potentially toxic exposure to our children and environment. When the turf is in better condition it is also safer for children to play on in the event that they fall.
The second target are church grounds, will serve to beautify visible turf areas that are significant to the community spiritually. Many churches here in New England are beautiful structures in and of themselves, but when the lawn is in disrepair it can take away from the feeling of awe that can be felt by many just passing by the house of worship. We are non-denominational and recognize the benefit that many different faiths provide the community. Our aim is to improve the community by subtly making it's people feel better about the places of spiritual significance in it.
The third target we intend support other non-profit organizations that can benefit from our services. We plan to care for and improve lawns of community members currently serving our nation in the armed services by participating in "GreenCare for Troops". We also hope to help Habitat for Humanity and possibly other groups brought to our attention. These activities will require funding to supply raw materials (fertilizers, limestone, grass seed, mulch, compost, topsoil, ect.), to rent and purchase equipment (trucks, trailers, hydroseeders, spreaders, topdressers, ect.), and pay employees.
We operated for several years as a public charity, a 501c3 called The Simply Safer Foundation, we closed this recently due to the overhead costs associated (accounting, legal, and state filing fees). Today we are very proud to still donate our services to several good causes and also several thousands of dollars worth of our services and also with direct contributions to dozens of good causes. Several of the causes we support each year include; the Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, Attleboro Recreation dept., Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition, Magic Garden School, St John’s School, Rotary Club, Dighton Softball, Understanding our Differences, Fisher House, Pan-Mass Challenge, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, MEB Foundation.
