Kane Landscapes

Come Alive Outside

On April 22, 2013, Kane Landscapes participated in the nationwide PLANET Day of Service, by bringing volunteers to a home in Dunn Loring, VA, operated by Langley Residential Support Services, serving adults with intellectual disabilities. In the spirit of this year’s Day of Service theme, “Come Alive Outside,” we celebrated Earth Day by making the outdoor environment for the 6 residents that live at this home more enjoyable by constructing a patio, adding color with plants, and re-establishing a vegetable garden.

Kane Landscapes has a special relationship with Langley Residential Support Services, with our President, Josh Kane, serving on the Board of Directors for the past 2 years. Josh Kane said of the event, “We wanted to donate our time and resources to make the lives of these individuals more enjoyable by providing an outdoor environment they can use.”   

We had a wonderful time with the residents and staff of Langley Residential. We would like to thank all of our employees and other volunteers for  your help in bringing life to their outdoor environment. And a special thank you to Langley Residential and the residents for making this such an enjoyable Earth Day!
