No time for house cleaning? We’re here to help you!

Doylestown Mayor Honors National Cleaning For A Reason Week, April 18th-24th, and Harmony Clean, Inc. for Service to Women Battling Cancer

CLEANING FOR A REASON MAYOR PROCLAMATION 4-2016

For ten years, residential house cleaning businesses have been providing free house cleaning services across the nation for women undergoing cancer treatment.  Executive Director of Cleaning For A Reason (C4R), Lynn Frankenfield, recently expressed, “when you go into a home to help out and you see a wig on a stand and children patiently waiting for their lunch while mommy is sick in the bathroom, it puts your own troubles into perspective. It truly had a profound impact on me to experience firsthand the difference that a clean home makes for a woman battling cancer.”

The goals of celebrating National Cleaning For A Reason week are twofold. The first is to bring awareness to women who could use a helping hand. “The motto of the organization is to let us focus on your home, so you can focus on your health,” states Harmony Clean, Inc., co-owner, Vicki Brown. There is no income or other qualifying criteria; help is available to all women. The second is to bring awareness to other house cleaning or maid services that can join forces by partnering with C4R so more women can be reached and helped. “By receiving this proclamation from our mayor, we feel that the work of Cleaning For A Reason is truly recognized and appreciated in improving the lives of cancer patients and their families in our community,” states Brown.  Harmony Clean, Inc. has a twelve mile service area from Doylestown, Pa., but extends their zone to fifteen miles for this program.

The national nonprofit was founded by a maid service owner who wanted to give back to her community. While at an industry tradeshow she discovered that she wasn’t alone. Most of the other owner’s she spoke with were also already donating their services to those in their community in need on an informal basis. Debbie Sardone, founder of C4R, decided to organize these efforts and the results are astounding. To date C4R has recruited over 1,200 maid services to donate free house cleaning to women who are undergoing treatment for cancer. Local Doylestown participant, Harmony Clean, Inc., has been involved since 2007 and has volunteered their time to clean for 83 local women and donated over $38,000 worth of free services.
