LEWISVILLE, Texas, July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleaning For A Reason® is pleased to announce continued support from The American Cleaning Institute® (ACI – www.cleaninginstitute.org). This year, ACI has donated more than $36,000 to help Cleaning For A Reason® provide the gift of free home cleanings to women battling cancer.
ACI has been supporting Cleaning For A Reason since 2008 when its Senior Vice President of Education, Nancy Bock, joined Cleaning For A Reason's board.
"I am so grateful for ACI and the generosity of their members. They continue to surprise us each year with their enthusiastic support for our cause," said Debbie Sardone, Cleaning For A Reason President and Founder. "ACI members are making a tangible difference in the lives of many women suffering with cancer."
Cleaning For A Reason will use the money toward programming. Cleaning For A Reason strives to aid women who are battling any type of cancer by teaming up with cleaning services across the U.S. and Canada. Employees of partner cleaning services are not asked to donate their time, and are paid their regular wages. Since 2006, Cleaning For A Reason has provided the gift of a clean home to more than 18,000 women through a network of approximately 1,200 cleaning services.
"The American Cleaning Institute is honored to partner with Cleaning for a Reason to provide cleaning services to women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer," said Nancy Bock, ACI Senior Vice President of Education. "We are wowed by the engagement of the cleaning products industry and in awe of their support for our duck race, fun run and golf tournament. These activities and our contribution demonstrate our commitment to better living for cancer patients with the gift of a free house cleaning."
Both Cleaning For A Reason and ACI look forward to continuing their partnership, which is now eight years strong.
