The Maids of Washington D.C. Joins Cleaning for Heroes
Giving honor to veterans and service members can happen every day of the year if you really put your mind to it. While many people enjoy long weekends and holidays like Memorial Day, Independence Day, or Veteran’s Day, The Maids of Washington D.C. decided that every day was worth giving honor, and decided to do something about it.
Cleaning for Heroes is a non-profit organization that connects maid services across the nation to deserving individuals who have been injured or disabled in the line of duty. Cleaning for Heroes is dedicated to providing house cleaning services, at no cost, to disabled and/or elderly members of the United States Military, local police or fire departments.
Thousands of soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan are returning to civilian life with moderate to severe physical injuries. Disabling injuries such as loss of limbs, head trauma and debilitating injuries to arms and legs make it difficult for these men and women to meet the demands of everyday life such as cleaning and maintaining their homes. There are hundreds of thousands of other veterans from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Gulf War who also have disabling injuries.
Veterans' organizations nationwide are trying hard to meet the needs of disabled veterans, but until Cleaning for Heroes, there was no organization dedicated to meeting the needs of this very deserving group of men and women by providing much needed house cleaning help. For some elderly veterans, the difference between having some household help and not having household help could be the difference between whether they get to stay in their own home or be forced into a retirement home.
For other veterans, it could mean the difference between staying at home after surgery or returning to the hospital because they were unable to maintain a sanitary environment in which to heal.
The Maids was one of the first companies to step forward and offer their help in Washington D.C.
“I feel so grateful for the men and women who have put their lives at risk to serve our country,” explains Liz Daus, owner of The Maids of Washington D.C. “It is an honor to be able to help veterans, in even a small way. We hope to give something back to make their lives a little more manageable”
The Maids of Washington D.C. has joined the ranks of professional residential maid services located nationwide that have elected to say "thank you" to deserving heroes for their sacrifices while protecting and serving our community and nation.
