Peace Sponsor Spotlight
Peace Sponsor — August/September 2012
Hometown Landscape and Lawn Service installing
sponsored gift bricks in Mattie’s Peace Garden
The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation has a huge mission – further Mattie’s message of hope and peace and support other people in putting that message into action. However, like most small, volunteer-based not-for-profits, we have very few resources and very limited funding. We rely on the generosity of individuals and groups who make financial donations, and on the support of businesses who facilitate our efforts through in-kind support. Hometown Landscape and Lawn Service is one of those incredible businesses that keeps us in business by sharing the time and talent of their business!
Since 2005, nearly 500 ‘personalized gift bricks’ have been sponsored and installed in the Peace Garden area of the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Park in Rockville, Maryland. These sponsorships support our work, and celebrate messages and memories that come together as “mosaic of gifts” in Mattie’s Park – which ultimately reflects his his message of peace: “We have, we are, a mosaic of gifts.”
During 2011 and 2012, Hometown Landscape and Lawn Service offered their brick installation services for a reduced fee. For that, we are grateful. During August 2012, we celebrate the generosity of this company by featuring them as our Peace Sponsor of the Month.
Hometown Landscape and Lawn Service has been providing outstanding customized service to clients for more than 15 years. This has earned us them the reputation of one of Maryland’s premier residential and commercial landscape companies. As a full-service landscape company, they provide a one-stop shop for all areas of landscaping, including design, maintenance, construction, irrigation, stone walls, outdoor rooms, water features and lighting for residential and commercial clients. Because each of their clients has different needs, all of their designs and concepts are customized to satisfy each customer in a unique way.
John Polizos, who has supervised and been a part of the brick installation across the years, said that it has been wonderful to be a part of spreading Mattie’s message by working in the Peace Garden. “We are honored to be a part of the community that recognizes someone so special,” he said.
