FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL COMPANY MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Oshawa, Ontario – March 31, 2022 – The Cleaning Ladies has partnered with nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason to help local cancer patients. Owner Karen Conchie is committed to making a difference in the community and wants to extend their reach to helping cancer patients.
“Cancer has touched every one of us at The Cleaning Ladies in one way or another and we can empathise deeply with the patients and the families,” said Conchie. “We feel this cause allows us to give back to our community in an enriching way. We find it incredibly rewarding that the patients and the families we serve can enjoy a clean, safe space during one of the most trying times in their lives.”
Through their partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, The Cleaning Ladies cleans two homes per month for two consecutive months free of charge. This is an ongoing service to cancer patients residing in Durham Region and Bowmanville.
Cleaning for a Reason Week is April 18-24 and any one can help by volunteering or donating to the cause. For more information on how you can help, go to cleaningforareason.org/cleaning-for-a-reason-week.
Said Debbie Sardone, founder of Cleaning for a Reason, “During and well after the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s critical to keep cancer patients’ homes clean, safe, and healthy, as their immune systems and strength may be compromised. Cleaning for a Reason Week is a great way to give back to cancer patients and do what the cleaning industry does best—clean!”
