FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL CLEANING COMPANY MAKING A DIFFERENCE YEAR-ROUND
Plattsburgh, NY – October 19, 2022 – Since 2011, owners Cathy Bashaw and Carol Robert of X-Treme Clean, LLC have been supporting local cancer patients with the gift of a clean home. In partnership with nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason, these owners are eager to continue paying it forward to more local cancer patients in need.
“We joined Cleaning for a Reason because our co-owner, Carol Robert, had survived colon cancer,” said Bashaw. “Since that time both of us have survived multiple bouts with various cancers. We know the stresses associated with the disease and are grateful we can give back to our community and lift the spirits of cancer patients and their families.”
Since 2011, X-Treme Clean has supported 9 cancer patients with $3,365 in donated cleanings. In partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, X-Treme Clean supports two homes each month for two consecutive months free of charge for cancer patients residing in Plattsburgh.
Cleaning for a Reason is successful every year because of the people and companies that support it. There are four ways to participate with this important cause:
• Nominate: If any cancer patient you know—man, woman, or child—is currently receiving treatment, recovering from surgery, or in hospice care, and resides in the United States or Canada, please have the patient apply (or you on their behalf) for free house cleaning at cleaningforareason.org/patients
• Partner: More cleaning partners are needed. These companies selflessly donate their time and services to support cancer patients and their families. Learn more and join the cause at cleaningforareason.org/cleaning-companies
• Sponsor: Every cleaning makes lives better for families during this difficult time. Learn about company sponsorship opportunities at cleaningforareason.org/corporate-partner-application
