The Cleaning Authority Locations Support Breast Cancer Patients
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While this month is used as a way to focus on Breast Cancer Awareness, many of our franchisees across the network have partnered with organizations to help support patients with free cleaning.
The Plano Frisco, TX office is one of a handful of offices who partner with Cleaning for a Reason to provide free cleaning services to female cancer patients. Owners Susan and Allen Thrift have been doing these cleanings since July.
Recently, the owners were featured in the Community Impact Newspaper: Plano Edition. Susan told the paper, “I think it’s fantastic. My nephew had cancer and was diagnosed when he was 4 [years old] and died when he was 9 [years old]… I watched what my sister went through caring for him and cleaning the house was her last priority.”
In Troy, MI, the office has been working with the Gilda’s Club of Metro Detroit for more than two years. The Gilda’s Club provides a place where those living with cancer, their families, and friends can join with others to build emotional and social support as a supplement to medical care. The Cleaning Authority of Troy’s owner Tim Bridges sends a crew to the Gilda’s Club twice a week.
“They are doing good for the community,” Tim told the Troy Patch of Gilda’s Club in a recent news article about their partnership. “They needed their place cleaned, and we can be of service there. It’s the right thing to do.”
In addition to offering free cleans to support patients, offices of The Cleaning Authority are also working to raise awareness of Breast Cancer. The staff in the Plainfield, IL office showed their support by wearing their “Go Pink” t-shirts.
We want to thank all of our offices who work to support Breast Cancer patients and raise awareness of the disease.
