Rodney Smith Jr. awarded Madison City Coin

MADISON – A Madison resident who has proved his commitment to helping others, not just locally but across the United States, has received a Madison City Coin.

Rodney Smith Jr. accepted the commemorative coin from District One Council Member Maura Wroblewski at the June 14 meeting of Madison City Council. The coin presentation recognizes Smith for his work with Raising Men Lawn Care Service. (weareraisingmen.com)

Wroblewski commended Smith for his selfless contribution to the City of Madison, State of Alabama and the nation. “Mr. Smith embodies the spirit of giving back to his community and helping those in need,” Wroblewski said.

The Raising Men Lawn Care Service is the union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspirational program to keep youth, both girls and boys, on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society. The service provides free lawn care to elderly residents, individuals who have disabilities, single mothers and military veterans.

People who receive the lawn service do not have the time, resources and/or money to take care of their yards. Raising Men Lawn Care Service is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

According to its mission statement, Raising Men Lawn Care Service “unites the extraordinary community that is present in our local area. They are completely confident in the fact that they can provide a very inspirational program that focuses on channeling the energy that youth have in a positive way, as well as helping those who often need it the most. They understand that sometimes youth want to help the community and sometimes people need it, but it can be hard to know who, why and where. They focus on getting all of this information while also helping people in our area to care for and maintain their lawns. And in the winter, they will shovel snow.”

In presenting the coin, Wroblewski said, “Mr. Smith, on behalf of the City Council and Mayor’s Office and on behalf of a grateful city for the blessings you have bestowed on Madison residents, Alabama residents and those across the entire nation, it is my honor and privilege to award you the City Coin for the City of Madison. Thank you and may God bless your ministry.”
