Cub Cadet and TaskEasy Offer Free Lawncare to COVID-19 First Responders, Doctors and Nurses
Industry-leading outdoor power brand and on-demand lawncare service partner to make life a little easier for heroes on the COVID-19 frontlines.
CLEVELAND, May 4, 2020 — First responders and emergency workers risk their lives and well-being on the COVID-19 frontlines every day to care for our families, friends and communities. To support these everyday heroes and shoulder some of their to-do lists at home, Cub Cadet is partnering with TaskEasy to offer free lawn mowing.
Cub Cadet, a leading manufacturer of lawn care equipment, and TaskEasy, an on-demand lawncare service serving more than 12,000 U.S. cities, are offering a free month of lawn mowing service (up to two cuts, every other week) to doctors, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers and firefighters. To apply for the free service, these workers should visit TaskEasy.com/offer.
“Cub Cadet is inspired by the daily sacrifices made by our first responders and emergency health care professionals as they care for our communities,” said Heidi Ketvertis, Vice President of Marketing, Cub Cadet. “Through this simple gesture of providing lawn mowing, heroes can return home with one less task to do. We hope this service helps them and their families during a challenging time.”
To make the offer available, Cub Cadet is donating the costs for TaskEasy contractors for services provided to these frontline emergency workers, up to $200,000. Lawn service has been deemed an essential service nationwide because proper maintenance reduces wildfire risk from tall grasses, helps prevent pest infestations, and helps keep homes in a safe condition.
“Helping thousands of first responders while providing additional work to our contractors really motivates our team,” said Ken Davis, CEO and founder, TaskEasy. “This pandemic has disrupted ordinary life for every American in ways big and small. Through this partnership, Cub Cadet and TaskEasy are doing as much good as we can for those who are putting it all on the line for us.”
