Cleaning For A Reason helps women in treatment for cancer have sparkling clean homes

Through local cleaning and maid service partners, the Foundation relieves cleaning chores so women can focus on getting well.

Housework can be drudgery in the best of times, but for women being treated for cancer, the task can be insurmountable. Fortunately help is out there. The Cleaning For a Reason Foundation is dedicated to easing the housekeeping chores as women undergo treatment. Working with local cleaning and maid companies, the Foundation provides cleaning services once a month for four months.

Participating cleaning companies in the St. Louis area include Marvelous Maids, O’Fallon; Dee’s Cleaning Service, St. Charles; Green Angel Cleaning Service, St. Louis; Home Cleaning Centers of America, St. Louis-Midtown-South; and Go Green Clean in Webster Groves.

Founded in 2006 by Debbie Sardone, a 29-year veteran of the cleaning industry, the organization has provided more than $500,000 in free cleaning services. What a wonderful mission this group and affiliated cleaning services have taken on. By offering to help women in treatment, we see direct, immediate assistance to make their lives easier and more normal during a very difficult time.

If you know of a woman who would qualify, go to the Cleaning For A Reason website to help her begin the application process. While the Foundation does have sponsors, including Hoover and Allstate, donations are still needed to expand cleaning services. You may go here to help even more women being treated for cancer to have clean homes!
