Molly Maid Food Drive Collects More Than 15,000 Pounds of Food


This summer The Salvation Army partnered once again with MOLLY MAID and its customers in an effort to collect non-perishable food items to help restock depleted shelves.

The home cleaning franchise collected more than 15,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to help hungry families.
Early in July, company representatives left a note explaining the partnership, the need to support thousands of Canadians who are unable to provide food for their families, and a plastic bag for donations at all its clients’ homes. Some customers gave on the spot and others indicated there would be something next visit.

So, instead of waiting to show their generosity during the Christmas holidays, MOLLY MAID customers celebrated Christmas in July.
