Cleaning for a Reason
Nonprofit: Cleaning for a Reason
Although cleaning is not always fun, for some ailing Tulsans, it is impossible. Sara McCoy’s company, Magic Maids of Tulsa, partners with the national nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason to provide free cleaning services for women with cancer.
Tell us about Magic Maids of Tulsa and its involvement with Cleaning For a Reason. Magic Maids of Tulsa began in March 2015 ... We were asked by Cleaning for a Reason (in Lewisville, Texas) to join their team ... It wasn’t long before we met women who were very sick and could not clean their homes.
How did this volunteerism expand to include cleaning for male cancer patients? Cleaning for a Reason is only for women, but Magic Maids of Tulsa has reached out to men locally who have been diagnosed with cancer.
It broke my heart when I went to a house and told the family about Cleaning for a Reason. The little girl looked up at me and stated she did not like Cleaning for a Reason. I asked her why, and she said, ‘Because my dad is dying from cancer’ ... I could not charge that family. From that moment on, I tell everyone that Magic Maids of Tulsa cleans the homes of men and women who have cancer for free ... We have reached six women through Cleaning for a Reason and seven men through Magic Maids of Tulsa LLC.
