MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Staples Advantage Canada (the
Business-to-Business Division of Staples) has contributed $20,000 to
Cleaning For A Reason - a charity that offers free cleaning services to
women undergoing cancer treatment. The contribution was the result of a
month long campaign in October during Breast Cancer Awareness month
which saw $1 per order of select cleaning products purchased from
Staples Advantage go to the non-profit organization.
As a result of the donation made by Staples Advantage in partnership
with its vendors, 50 patients will be served, resulting in 200
professional cleanings over a 4-month period for women who are
undergoing cancer treatment.
"Cleaning For A Reason is a charity that gives back to those who need it
most", said Michael Zahra, President of Staples Advantage Canada. "We
are proud to contribute to an organization that is focused on the
well-being and recovery of women battling cancer."
"The support we receive from Staples Advantage allows us to further
extend our reach to women with cancer and provide them the opportunity
to receive the much-needed gift of house cleaning while battling this
devastating disease", said Lynn Frankenfield, Executive Director at Cleaning For A Reason. "We thank Staples for their support so we can continue to reduce the
stress and ease the burden women and their families face once they
learn of a cancer diagnosis."
