October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, charities, as well as community members and organizations, come together to raise awareness for breast cancer and breast cancer research to support patients and their families.
In 2006, Cleaning For a Reason was founded to provide support to breast cancer and cancer patients through free cleaning services. They were inspired to do this because they wanted the patients and families to have one less thing to worry about and find comfort in a clean, cozy home. Since then, Cleaning for a Reason and its partners have provided free home cleaning for more than 45,000 cancer patients and their families across all 50 U.S. states and Canada. Their website shares that these services are valued at more than $15.2 million.
Here at Sponge & Sparkle, we strive to give back and support our community, as well as cancer patients. Immediately, we knew we had to partner with Cleaning For a Reason to bring this great idea to Atlanta Georgia. Continue reading for more details about who, what, when, where, and why in regard to this initiative.
Who We Are
We, Sponge & Sparkle, are Atlanta’s most experienced residential cleaning service. We have cleaned over 100,000 since 1981! The numbers speak for themselves.
Furthermore, we have a heart for service and gratitude. We are affiliated with the nonprofit “Cleaning for a Reason”, which, as aforementioned, offers free cleanings for people undergoing treatment for cancer. We also give part of our profits to local schools through “Donors Choose”, and regularly contribute to other environmental and social causes. We put our money where our mouth is!
Additionally, we cherish our clients and our employees alike! We know our clients deserve responsive, reliable, and attentive professional service on every level. We only use non-toxic cleaning compounds and essential oils that leave the air quality better than when we arrived. Likewise, we know our employees deserve the same proper communication, opportunities for growth, and competitive wages. We offer flexible work schedules, paid time off, and several training sessions for career development.
We love making the world a better place – one clean home at a time. Outer order really does equal inner calm, so we know our mission is important. A clean and tidy home is a healthy home that contributes greatly to peace of mind! When your time is already so limited, why not outsource some of the work to us? You have a beautiful home and life that you deserve to fully enjoy, so let us help. When we leave your home will sparkle and shine!
