JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An Alabama man is on a mission to do free lawn care in all 50 states.

Rodney Smith Jr. is the founder of Raising Men Lawn Care and offers his services to the elderly, disabled, single moms and veterans. According to his website, while traveling from state to state, he seeks out youth to help him with the lawn work, teach them about mowing safety and encourage them to get involved in community service.

So far he’s been to 26 states and is in Jackson Friday to cut a few lawns.

Smith tweeted Friday morning that some members of the Forest Hill High School football team joined his efforts while mowing the lawn of a Jackson man.

Smith will be cutting lawns in Jackson, Raymond and Clinton during his stop.
