We are proud to be part of “Cleaning for a Reason”, an organization designed to help women with cancer get the daily choirs of life handled. Cleaning businesses across the country choose to participate by contributing money and time to help those who need it. If you live in our service area and are a woman undergoing cancer treatment, or know someone who is then please contact Cleaning For a Reason to enroll in the program and receive cleanings for free while you undergo treatment.
Our commitment to cleaning for women with cancer is one of the most fulfilling things that we do. Let me share just one story…
One of our client’s recently was diagnosed with cancer and began chemotherapy. She thought she would be able to maintain her home throughout her treatment. She has always been a “take charge” woman and didn’t feel right about accepting a maid service at no charge. Her friends urged her to take advantage of the Cleaning for a Reason program. I think she continued to feel as if she wasn’t worthy of the service for about a month. Then the chemo kicked in and it changed her in many ways. She began looking forward to our arrival. She called after each visit and couldn’t say enough kind words. It’s amazing what a clean environment can do for someone. It lifts their spirits and makes them comfortable in their environment.
Sometimes it’s the small acts of kindness that leave the biggest impressions. Our involvement with Cleaning for a Reason allows us to help others in our community by doing what we do best.
