Chem-Dry Partners with Breast Cancer Foundation on National Campaign Global Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Leader's 'Cleaning for the Cause' Program Raises Funds, Awareness for Breast Cancer
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chem-Dry, the world's largest carpet and upholstery cleaning service, is continuing its partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for the third consecutive year. Through its Cleaning for the Cause program, Chem-Dry has raised more than $100,000 for NBCF over the past two years and plans to significantly grow that number this year.
Chem-Dry chose to partner with NBCF because breast cancer affects so many lives and is such a personal cause for many of its franchise owners and customers, who are mostly women.
"Working in thousands of homes everyday, we see a desperate need for help, support, and above all, a cure for breast cancer," said Bill Zinke, Chem-Dry Vice President of Marketing. "Our fundraising makes a difference for people whose lives are devastated by this disease, and we thank our franchise owners for getting behind this program in their local communities."
Through Chem-Dry's Cleaning for the Cause campaign, customers can purchase their World Famous Spot Remover in specially designed pink cans. Each can purchased generates an automatic $1 donation to NBCF. Homeowners can also support the cause by scheduling a professional cleaning with a local participating Chem-Dry franchise, which can be found by visiting the website's zip code locator and selecting a Chem-Dry with an accompanying pink ribbon icon. To donate directly to NBCF, people can visit chemdry.com/pink.
Additionally, Chem-Dry owners support the cause through other activities including cleaning the homes of breast cancer survivors for free and participating in local breast cancer awareness events.
