We aren’t just cleaning; we are cleaning for a reason!
Maid For You is a proud partner of the non-profit organization Cleaning For A Reason; which has been able to provide almost 40 free cleanings for our local cancer patients to date.
House cleaning is not something that goes away or pauses when you get sick. Unfortunately, it continues to pile up and gets increasingly harder to maintain once cancer treatment has started, and energy depletes.
Maid For You is here to help!
Cleaning For A Reason is a non-profit organization founded by Debbie Sardone. Its focus is to give cancer patients a clean home so they can take care of their health and families.
The organization matches people battling with cancer with professional house cleaning services that have pledged to donate free house cleaning to their local cancer patients.
Sardone founded Cleaning For A Reason after receiving a call from a cancer patient asking for an estimate. On an interview with TODAY.com, Sardone told her story. “She said, ‘Maybe I’ll call you when I can afford it,’ and hung up. And that was before Caller ID. I had no way to call her back”.
Right after that, Debbie made the decision that the next time a woman going through cancer treatment needed her home cleaned, she would do it for free.
Debbie shared the story at a professional cleaning convention and many other company owners, big and small, said they wanted to do just the same.
That’s when she finally took it upon herself to make it happen and created Cleaning For A Reason. Currently, the businesses who offer their services do not charge anything to the patients. However, the employees do get paid for their work.
Its an honor for Maid For You to be a part of this organization. So that we can bring happiness and relief to many women in our town, it is a blessing to lighten a load for these patients by relieving some of the burdens of their situation.
“To be able to provide a little light on their darkest days is a feeling unlike any other” – Lisa Ciao, Owner
