Dallas Maids, now a proud partner of Cleaning For A Reason
It comes naturally for us to have the chance to further serve the welfare of the community through Cleaning for a Reason, especially considering Dallas Maids’ mission of maximizing the well-being of customers and employees.
We are blessed to serve our community. We graciously thank Cleaning For A Reason for giving us the privilege to give back.
Here’s a little bit more about this initiative and how it came down to where it is right now.
More about Cleaning For A Reason
Cleaning for a Reason was the brainchild of President and Founder, Debbie Sardone, owner of Buckets & Bows Maid Service, Lewisville, TX. Debbie took a phone call from a prospective client several years ago. After providing the woman a price quote, the prospect paused before saying, “I won’t be able to afford that now; I’m undergoing cancer treatment” and hung up. Debbie didn’t get the woman’s phone number and was unable to call back to make arrangements. In that instant, Debbie decided that her business would never turn down any woman undergoing cancer treatment. In fact, they would be given free housecleaning service.
Calling her staff, Debbie announced the new policy, which the company has used over and over, through the years. In 2005, Debbie shared her story with other maid services at a national cleaning industry convention. She shared her conviction that it was these women, undergoing the physical, emotional; and financial rigors of cancer treatment, who needed professional housecleaning services the most. An onslaught of cleaning business owners began expressing their interest and support.
When she returned to Texas, Debbie registered Cleaning For A Reason as a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation. With word of this at the next convention, maid services began signing up to donate their services on the spot. Since that time, in 2006, Cleaning For A Reason has helped women with cancer receive the gift of over $3.7 million dollars worth of free house cleaning. This has happened thanks to the help from approximately 1,000 maid service partners.
We hope you can check her website and see the meaningful work they have been doing for many years.
