THE MAIDS INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS WITH CLEANING FOR A REASON TO SUPPORT FEMALE CANCER PATIENTS
We Fight Dirty Against Cancer
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.
Since the inception of Cleaning for a Reason in 2006, The Maids has donated over 3,150 cleans, valued at more than $573,500.
