The Cleaning Authority CARES Provides Owners Easy Way to Give Back

Cleaning Authority CaresThis summer, more than 150 franchises of The Cleaning Authority participated in The Cleaning Authority CARES’ first food drive, and it was a great success! Across North America we collected 13,883 bags for a total of 120,622 pounds of food. This food will provide over 100,000 meals for families across the US and Canada.

“Everyone’s efforts in putting this together are making a HUGE difference” said Pete DeLorme of Knoxville, TN. “The impact is real.” Pete’s office collected over 2200 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

The Cleaning Authority CARES was formed at the end of 2015 to help facilitate the charitable work franchisees were doing in their local communities.

Five franchise owners led a committee that helped develop the program, focused on addressing hunger in local communities. This program not only gives offices of The Cleaning Authority an opportunity to give back, but it also engages our customers. While organizing a food drive independently might have been a daunting task to take on, our franchisees found it to be an easy program to execute.

Deborah Helak, owner of the Downington, PA location, felt the bags and other marketing materials provided by the corporate office really made it all possible for her team to participate. In the end, the office collected over 1600 pounds of food for the Chester County Food Bank.

“Without it I don’t believe we would have had the time to bring this to fruition and I know our customers appreciated being given a guideline of what was needed and a bag to place items in,” Deborah said. “It was so well thought out and I believe hugely successful because of these efforts. I would not have thought a small business like ours could have such a profound impact on our community. This was entirely doable and we look forward to participating again.”

Because of the great success of The Cleaning Authority CARES’ first campaign, franchisees will hold a second campaign during the holiday season.
