12-year-old Rockford landscaping entrepreneur receives donation of snowblower

News

One of Rockford’s youngest entrepreneurs received a helping hand in the form of a new snowblower.

12-year-old K.J. runs his own landscaping business and has been spending his winter clearing driveways and sidewalks the old-fashioned way… with a shovel and determination.

That is, until the Fatherhood Encouragement Project stepped in.

The non-profit group bought K.J. a snowblower from North Park Rental Services.

K.J. says the money he is earning through his business is going toward his college education.
