Debbie Sardone, President and Founder, had the idea to start Cleaning For A Reason years ago when, as the owner of Buckets & Bows Maid Service, she had a call with a prospective client who told Debbie, “I won’t be able to afford that now; I’m undergoing cancer treatment” and hung up. Since Debbie had not gotten the woman’s phone number she was unable to call back to make arrangements and in that instant decided no woman undergoing cancer treatment would ever be turned away by her business. In fact, they would even be offered a free housecleaning service!
Cleaning For A Reason is a nonprofit organization that serves the United States and Canada. Our mission is to give the gift of free house cleaning for women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer. Our goal is to let these brave and strong women focus on their health and treatment while we focus on, and take away the worry and work of, cleaning their homes– free of charge. We have recruited over 1,200 maid services to donate free housecleaning to women who are undergoing treatment for cancer. Since 2006, our partner maid services have volunteered their time to clean for over 17,000 women – valued at over $5,000,000.
