The Maids in Jacksonville Partners with Cleaning for a Reason to Support Female Cancer Patients
The Maids in Jacksonville has joined forces with Cleaning for a Reason, to make the lives of female cancer patients a bit easier. Cleaning for a Reason is a nonprofit organization serving residents of the United States and Canada with the mission of giving free house cleaning services to women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer by partnering with local maid services.
Cancer patients often experience extreme exhaustion from treatment and chemotherapy. This fatigue is especially difficult for women responsible for running a home. Founder, Debbie Sardone, realized the need when she was running her own cleaning service in Texas. “A woman called, and I gave her a quote to have her home cleaned, and she said ‘Oh I really can’t afford that right now, I’m going through chemotherapy and not working. Maybe I’ll call you when I’m better.’ And she hung up the phone,” Sardone recalls. “I realized I’d missed an opportunity, and decided the next time someone needed our help, we’d do it. Free of charge.”
Fast forward and that commitment grew into a nationwide nonprofit with more than 1,200 maid service partners in all 50 states, including The Maids Jacksonville.
“To be able to help the members of our community battling cancer in a time of such distress is so meaningful to us,” said Connie Bounds, franchisee in Jacksonville, Florida. “For the women fighting such a courageous battle, this is the least we can do to help lighten their burden. Not only is it positive for them, it’s a meaningful experience for our team members as well.”
Since the inception of Cleaning for a Reason in 2006, The Maids has donated over 4,000 cleans, valued at more than $900,000.
