Local Landscape Company Donates Thousands to 10 Area Schools

From Greg Shannon of Wheats Landscape:

 

In past years as budgets have tightened our schools have definitely suffered. One of the first things cut back were the resources to maintain their landscapes.  Wheats Landscape has been built on a culture of giving back and has stepped up to fill this void.  Wheats has been active in the community for over 30 years donating time to local youth sports organizations, charities and individuals in need through our “Care to Share Program.”
