Honor Teresa by telling us how your company and your employees are involved in your community.

ARCSI Members care about their communities and they are involved in countless ways. Teresa Ward was a champion of giving back to her community. We are all deeply saddened by her passing last year. ARCSI has created the “Teresa Ward Community Service Awards” to honor her memory. 

You can honor Teresa by telling us how your company and your employees are involved in your community. Hundreds of ARCSI members provide free cleanings for cancer patients through Cleaning for A Reason. Members are helping families through our Kleaning for Kids program at local Ronald McDonald Houses.

But we know you are doing more! Member companies and their employees support their communities in every way imaginable. They organize food drives and volunteer at food banks. They support their local “walks” for their favorite charitable cause. They are Red Cross Blood Donors and disaster relief volunteers. They are coaching and supporting local youth sports activities and programs in their local schools and churches. 

ARCSI is quantifying the local charitable giving and participation by our members for a presentation at this year’s Convention. So we need you to tell us your story. Take a moment and total up the hours you and your employees spend volunteering. Tell us about the special project you are involved in in your community. Teresa even started a non-profit called “Cleaning Angels” to provide free cleanings for seriously ill people. Others, like Stephanie Nesseth of Absolutely Maid Clean in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, have also set up your own non-profits to help your communities.  Click here to learn more about Time in a Bottle.

This is not a project just for large companies with a large staff. We know that even our smallest members are involved in charitable projects so we want to hear from all of you. Please return your form, or just email us your story by August 31, 2016.
