Molly Maid doing its part to help clean up domestic violence
October 16, 1:10 PM Nashville Teen Relationships Examiner Kecia Burcham
Molly Maid isn’t just about cleaning house! The Molly Maid franchise is definitely doing its part to clean up some of the mess domestic violence leaves in our communities. During October, which is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, several Nashville franchises are participating in the “Making a Difference Drive”; an effort to bring assistance to local victims of domestic violence.
Our teens are particularly vulnerable to this tragedy as they are often victims of domestic violence and/or witnesses to it. When domestic violence is part of life in the home, teens, due to their age, often have little recourse until someone in authority steps in or steps out. Families are often left homeless, frightened and all too often, unprotected. Violence in the home as well as dating violence can scar for life. Teens are left with very skewed ideas about love and relationships and they often go on to repeat the cycles they know.
During the month of October, a portion of the proceeds from each cleaning will be donated to the Ms. Molly Foundation. Ms. Molly is a non-profit charity which provides assistance to local domestic violence shelters and organizations across the country. Many franchises are also collecting pantry and toiletry items as well as holding candlelight vigils.
“Nearly one in four women is affected by domestic violence, and all too often, these women are forced to leave their homes and relocate with none of their belongings,” said Molly Maid President Kristi Mailloux. “Giving back to the communities we service is a core belief of Molly Maid, and we predict that this year’s ‘Making a Difference Drive’ will be the most successful yet.”
With the fall weather approaching and closets being re-organized, it’s a wonderful time for a big ole house cleaning. Why not give Molly Maid a call, and help out a cause right here in your community?
