FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CANCER SURVIVOR KEEPS PAYING IT FORWARD
Harpers Ferry, WV – September 13, 2022 – Jacky Costello is the founder and owner of Custom Cleanups, LLC, a residential cleaning company serving the greater Tampa Bay area in Florida. She just launched her second location in the West Virginia, Maryland, and Virginia tri-state area. In 2016, Costello partnered her company with nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason to donate free house cleaning to local cancer patients. As a cancer survivor herself, she is eager to pay it forward to cancer patients in the tri-state area.
“As a cancer survivor, I understand firsthand what it feels like to endure treatments and what a gift helping hands can be,” said Costello. “That is why we contribute our time and services as a partner with Cleaning for a Reason and why I am committed to helping as many cancer patients as I can with each of our locations. A clean, sanitized home is a safe, healthy environment, allowing cancer patients to focus on healing and family. Cancer can be quite isolating and we hope to help these patients and families feel connected and supported during this difficult time.”
Since first partnering with Cleaning for a Reason in 2016, Custom Cleanups has donated services to 68 cancer patients with total cleanings valued at $19,500. With their second location, Custom Cleanups will clean at least four local cancer patients’ homes each month for two consecutive months free of charge. This will be an ongoing service to patients residing in the West Virginia, Maryland, and Virginia tri-state area.
About Owner Jacky Costello and Custom Cleanups, LLC
After battling and beating cancer and emigrating from Germany to America with her family, Costello began shaping a chapter in her life that has surpassed anything she could have ever dreamed of.
“The journey after arriving in Florida has earned me many titles—wife, mom, Christian believer, cancer survivor, entrepreneur, author of How Far I Have Risen: Coming Clean About Cancer, God and My American Dream, and tireless volunteer,” said Costello.
“With my background in customer service and administrative support, I have always had a passion for serving people and a commitment to excellence. In 2014, I realized my dream of being an entrepreneur and launched Custom Cleanups with one mission in mind—helping people through delivery of trustworthy, detailed, and personable residential cleaning services. To me, the secret to being happy is helping others. We can all be creative in finding ways to do that, both personally and professionally.”
Custom Cleanups was recognized in 2019 and 2021 as Best of the Best Cleaning Business in Tampa Bay as well as a Top 100 Cleaning for a Reason Partner since 2018 for most cancer patients served. For more information about this company, go to customcleanups.com.
