Cleaning Homes to Fight the Cancer Blues

Dulles, VA –September 2012 – The number of women battling cancer is on the rise.  While we sit and wait for a cure, community members are gathering together to help women today.  Maid Brigade of Loudoun & Western Fairfax Counties has partnered with Cleaning For A Reason to help women in their community by providing free housecleaning to women currently in treatment for cancer. Harsh cancer treatments can deplete women of their strength and energy.  Research has shown that a clean environment contributes to the welfare and recovery of patients.

With their partnership with Cleaning For A Reason, Maid Brigade of Loudoun & Western Fairfax Counties has agreed to provide free housecleaning to two women at a time, each receiving one cleaning a month for four consecutive months. ”Partnering with “Cleaning for a reason” allows us to give back to the local community says Sally Crosen, Operations Manager at Maid Brigade. Offering service to those that are suffering from cancer will provided the freedom to spend time doing the things that matter most,” resting and being with their loved ones. With Maid Brigade, you can be sure your family is protected from additional health risks associated with traditional maid services because we operate a Green Cleaning service. We look forward to the reward we will feel offering this service to a community we have been servicing for 25 years.

Cleaning For A Reason provides free housecleaning to women in need by partnering with cleaning companies throughout the United States and Canada who donate their time and services to these deserving recipients. Within the past year, Cleaning For A Reason has grown from 800 partners to over 1,100. This has enabled the organization to donate $1.3 million worth of cleanings to more than 4,600 women in just twelve short months. This impact is due entirely to the fantastic efforts of their cleaning service partners who, since the inception of the organization in 2006, have collectively donated over $2.6 million in free services to more than 10,000 women with cancer, a milestone that the organization will surpass by 50 percent in 2012.  To learn more about Cleaning For A Reason visit their website:
