Molly Maid Reaches 20-Year Milestone of Shining Light on Domestic Violence

Nation’s Leading Residential Cleaning Company Raises Nearly $2.5 Million since 1996 through Ms. Molly Foundation

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - September 08, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Molly Maid, the nation’s leading residential cleaning company, has reached 20 years of supporting victims of domestic violence. In 1996, Molly Maid Founder David McKinnon established the Ms. Molly Foundation, a nonprofit organization striving to increase public awareness of domestic violence and providing assistance to local shelters and agencies, supporting more than 140 each year.

Molly Maid is the only residential cleaning franchise to create a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Since the foundation’s inception, it has raised nearly $2.5 million for local shelters that support victims in the communities Molly Maid serves.

Each October, the franchise system comes together in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month for the Ms. Molly Making a Difference Drive. Local Molly Maid offices collect funds and personal care items to donate to community shelters and agencies. In addition, franchise owners donate a portion of every house cleaning to the cause, actively supporting the Ms. Molly Foundation.

“One in four women are affected by domestic violence. We believe everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home,” said Meg Roberts, president of Molly Maid. “We hope to empower our communities through the Ms. Molly Foundation to stop the cycle of violence in the home. Due to the incredible support of our franchisees, customers, vendors, board of directors and home office team, we expect to exceed the $2.5 million milestone following this year’s drive.”
