This Houston mom mows lawns for free! And if you’re a senior or a veteran, she’s ready to help.
Lauren Laborde is a mother of two and our new hero – because she’s mowing lawns for free.
It’s a way to give back to those over the age of 65 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I realized a lot of seniors are on fixed incomes, so I figured there’s a creative way to help them out.”
Laborde uses a Toro 22-inch recycler lawn mower, an edger, and chainsaws.
Yes, she really mows lawns for free
Laborde is one of 11 volunteers with I Want To Mow Your Lawn, a national non-profit founded by Brian Schwartz, an advertising executive who also lost his job due to the pandemic.
Senior citizens and veterans were fighting greater battles against COVID-19.
Swartz decided that a free grass-cutting service was a good (and safe) way to help.
