Local Mayors Jody Smith of Flower Mound, Dianne Costa of Highland Village, Dean Ueckert of Lewisville and Mike Donnelly of Double Oak, each presented a Proclamation to Buckets & Bows Maid Service in celebration of the 2nd Annual National Cleaning For A Reason Week, April 18-24, 2010.
“We urge citizens to recognize and appreciate the services Buckets & Bows Maid Service provides to women in our community,” said Mayor Smith (pictured, center), in her proclamation presentation at the Cleaning For A Reason headquarters in Lewisville.
Buckets & Bows Maid Service, which has been providing professional housecleaning services in the area for nearly 30 years, began providing free house cleanings to local women undergoing cancer treatment a decade ago.
“Women with cancer are hard hit by physical, emotional and often financial crises simultaneously,” said Sardone. “The least I could do was give these women a beautiful clean home, while they were coping with surgery, radiation and chemo.”
Bucket’s & Bows Maid Service’s business practice was taken nationwide in 2005, when Sardone created the Cleaning For A Reason Foundation, partnering with professional residential cleaning businesses across the country. To date, the Foundation and its partners have helped more than 3,000 women.
“But that’s a fraction of the women in treatment,” says Sardone. “The Foundation’s most pressing need is more partners to help more women. We’re asking every household that uses or is considering using a professional maid service to insist on using one that’s part of the Foundation,” said Sardone.
