Recently, Bryan Smart, Founder & CEO of  SmartScaping Landscaping & Design, and local nonprofit the DMF Group Foundation brightened the holidays today for roughly 300 senior citizens with a Free Holiday Luncheon at the Knights of Columbus Hall (420 Telephone Road) in Houston! 

The Luncheon, presented by the Houston landscaping company’s ‘SmartScaping Cares’ charitable program, took place from 11am-2pm today.  Staff and volunteers from SmartScaping and the DMF Group served the senior guests baked chicken with tasty sides and beverages, along with a healthy dose of Christmas spirit!

“We wanted to make our seniors feel special, cared about, and remembered this holiday season,” said Bryan Smart, the 35-year-old Founder & CEO of SmartScaping Landscaping & Design. “There are a lot of events for kids and families this time of year, but not a lot for seniors and we know the holidays can be especially lonely for them.   We’re so grateful to the DMF Group Foundation and everyone who helped us share our blessings, a nice meal, a lot of smiles, and some holiday cheer today with these special members of our community.”  

Seniors have a special place in the SmartScaping CEO’s heart.  Last month, SmartScaping Cares, Daiq’s Restaurant and OMG Seafood, delivered 500 free homecooked meals to seniors living in multiple senior housing and assisted living complexes throughout Houston for Thanksgiving!
