A man who mows lawns for the elderly and disabled is now also delivering free meals

A man in Alabama who mows lawns for the elderly in all the 50 states is currently providing free meals.

Rodney Smith Jr. started following his mission to help people when he was 15-year-old. He was going about his day when he came across a senior citizen who was struggling to mow his lawn.

After helping the gentleman, he was motivated to help as many people as possible to mow their lawns. His primary focus was the disabled, single moms, the elderly, and veterans.

Rodney later founded an organization Raising Men Lawn Care service, whose primary mission was to inspire kids to make a difference by doing the same.

Through the organization, Rodney has inspired over 700 kids in all the 50 states to join his cause, and mow 50 lawns in their community.

He would later send them different colored T-shirts for every ten lawns they mow. After mowing 50 lawns, they would receive their lawnmower, leaf blower, and weed eater.

Because of the ongoing pandemic, Rodney Will be staying at home until it’s safe to travel again. While at home, he, together with other locals, has continued delivering free meals and supplies to the elderly, single moms, veterans, and people with disabilities.

Thanks to the people who are making donations, Rodney can now mow people’s lawns and drop supplies to the people who need it most.

Rodney told Al: “People have been donating money for hand sanitizer, fresh fruit, water, toilet paper, and other items for those who can’t get outside of their house.”

The lawnmower operator used social media to find people to help across the country.

God sent me

With all the excellent work he has done, he remains modest. “I’m just a man on a mission from God,” Rodney told Fox17 News.

We hope that the current pandemic will end so Rodney can go back to doing what he loves most.

“I’m just mowing and doing what I love to do best: helping others,” he said.

Rodney inspires the young generation to step up and make a difference in their community. Thank you for your service!
