When my mom was going through treatment for cancer, I saw firsthand how draining it is. My mom had no energy after treatments. Luckily my dad was able to keep the house clean. Today’s organization fills a need for those women in treatment that don’t have someone to help with house cleaning.
Cleaning for a Reason recruits maid services all over the country to give away free housecleaning services to women who are battling cancer. They are the only non-profit offering housecleaning to women with cancer. According to Debbie Sardone, Founder of Cleaning for a Reason, “As a maid service owner, I understood this need and wanted to do something about it, not just in my own home town, but all across the nation, so Cleaning For A Reason was born.”
The organization partners with cleaning services around the United States and Canada. They are close to having 1,000 partner services around the country offering free cleaning services to women undergoing cancer treatment. Since their founding in 2006, over 4,500 women have received free housecleaning services through the program.
If you or someone you know is undergoing cancer treatment, you can search for partners of Cleaning for a Reason on their website. If you are a maid service and would like to sign up as a partner, you can fill out a form on the website to start discussing the possibility.
Others can also help by shopping in the Cleaning for a Reason e-store. A variety of items are available including apparel, pins, mugs, camp chairs and more!
