The Cleaning Authority CARES program recently received the Silver Newcomer
Award at this year's
Franchising Gives Back Awards Dinner.
Franchising Gives Back, which was developed by the International Franchise
Association (IFA) Franchise Education & Research Foundation three
years ago, salutes the best and most innovative community leaders and
charitable programs nationwide. The Cleaning Authority was one of just
18 franchises recognized at the event, and the award put The Cleaning
Authority's charity efforts alongside the likes of McDonald's,
The Wendy's Company, and many other large franchises.
The Newcomer Category highlights new charitable or community support programs
launched within the last year that have made a significant impact on a
local community. The Cleaning Authority CARES was honored for its 2016
food collection, with 151 franchise locations contributing 238,175 pounds
of food to 216 food banks and organizations across North America.
Receiving the Silver Newcomer Award proves how The Cleaning Authority CARES
has furthered our reputation as a world class organization. In addition
to the recognition, The Cleaning Authority CARES was also awarded a donation
to a charity of its choice. These dollars went to
Feeding America. Many offices of The Cleaning Authority donate food to food banks that
are a part of the Feeding America system, so it was a natural choice to
support their organization.
Receiving this award is a true testament to the hard work from The Cleaning
Authority franchisees and the generosity of their customers. To learn
