Cleaning For A Reason
Guarantee Maid Services Home Cleaning Service is Louisiana’s first charter member of the Cleaning for a Reason Foundation. Maid services throughout the United States have cleaned more than 1,800 homes for women suffering from cancer as part of the Cleaning for a Reason Foundation. Cleaning for a Reason is the nation’s first non-profit organization dedicated to providing free or subsidized house cleaning services for women undergoing cancer treatment.
Ellen Folks, founder of Guarantee Maid Services, says, “People struggling with cancer have better things to worry about other than cleaning their homes, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to give back to the community.” Folks said when she discovered the Cleaning for a Reason Foundation, she knew this is how she could give back to so many more women who are struggling and suffering from cancer.
Debbie Sardone, Founder of Cleaning for a Reason Foundation, said, “Maid services have been doing this in small ways for years. Our members, such as Ellen Folks, have had a hard time turning down a woman who needs her house cleaned when she is battling cancer and cannot afford a maid service. I decided to form a foundation so that we could extend support across the entire country.”
Guarantee Maid Services is one of the first 30 charter members of the Foundation. The monthly pledges from individual maid services help fund the Foundation’s administrative expenses, while consumer donations are earmarked entirely for cleaning homes for women with cancer.
“We are proud of our efforts in Baton Rouge to support women who are struggling to win their fight with cancer. It’s great to know that our cleaning service helps with keeping a healthy home for these brave women,” said Ellen Folks.
Guarantee Maid Services has provided expert home cleaning, window washing and carpet cleaning services for 28 years serving homeowners in the greater Baton Rouge area.
