Maid in America is proud to participate with Cleaning For A Reason. If you are going through cancer treatment or know of someone that is – please contact us and Maid in America will be proud to help.
Cleaning For A Reason is a not for profit organization started in 2005 that serves women undergoing cancer treatment in the United States and Canada. Their mission it to provide the gift of free housecleaning to women in cancer treatment. This gift allows them to focus on the treatment and getting well instead of worrying about their house being clean – free of charge. Since 2006 Cleaning For A Reason partners have cleaned homes for over 25,000 women with a total contribution of more than $6,500,000.
Cleaning For A Reason is the vision of Debbie Sardone, owner of Buckets & Bows Maid Service. A prospective client called for services but could not afford to have her house cleaned – as she was undergoing costly cancer treatments. Debbie was not able to call her client back as she did not have a phone number. Debbie decided in that moment that she would never turn away a woman undergoing cancer treatment and they would offer her a free housecleaning!
In 2005, at a national cleaning industry convention, Debbie shared her story. Immediately a rush of cleaning company owners expressed interest in the program. Now, any woman undergoing the physical, emotional and financial stress of cancer treatment will be helped by Cleaning For A Reason.
