Cleaning For A Reason is helping women with cancer focus on getting well without having to worry about keeping their residence in order.

The nonprofit organization that serves all the United States and Canada recruits local cleaning companies to provide free house cleaning to women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.

“Our goal is to let these brave and strong women focus on their health and treatment while we focus on, and take away the worry and work of, cleaning their homes– free of charge,” said a company spokeswoman.

The Alpena Municipal Council has adopted a proclamation that coincides with National Cleaning for A Reason Week, which kicks off Thursday (APR 18) and continues through next Wednesday.

The city’s proclamation expresses appreciation for the organization and encourages citizens to recognize its contributions. For additional information on Cleaning For A Reason, to donate to the group, or if you are in need of services, visit cleaningforareason.org.

Since 2006, Cleaning For A Reason volunteers have cleaned for over 30,200 women, valued at over $10 million.
