A man on a mission plans to mow grass in all 50 states stopped in Kansas City on Monday. Rodney Smith Jr., started an organization that mows lawns for single mothers, veterans, and older Americans. He’s based out of Huntsville, Alabama and says he got the idea a couple of years ago when he saw an older man struggling to cut his grass.
He says his mission is rewarding. He loves how he can help people who are not able because it means a lot, especially for a lot of elderly people who can’t afford to get their grass cut because they’re on fixed incomes. It makes their day when he comes and cuts their grass for free. While in Kansas City, he mowed the yard of a Northland widow whose husband served in the Korean War. His organization encourages young men to mow 50 yards where they live.
