AvantaClean St. Jude Partnership
AdvantaClean entered a mutually beneficial relationship with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospitable® in 2016. We benefit by providing much needed financial and service line aide to the hospitable and patients in need, living up to our culture and C.A.R.E.S. values. Our goal is to support St. Jude in its mission to understand, treat, and defeat childhood cancer and other diseases. AdvantaClean is one of only 65 national strategic partners-joining the dedicated fight against life-threatening childhood diseases.
AdvantaClean is determined to make a positive impact on our community, implementing a “Give Five, Change Lives” initiative which encourages our customers to donate $5 for every job we complete for them. Additionally, we hosted the Braylon Beam Celebrity Golf Classic benefitting St. Jude, the largest or our 2016 fundraising efforts. The golf tournament included celebrity golfers, commercial sponsors, and several St. Jude patients.
Every September, our franchisees and home office staff participate in local St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer events, hosted across the country. We are dedicated to the cause and always experience a fantastic turnout. We are also the title sponsor of The Tri at the Trump, a triathlon to benefit St. Jude. Later this year, Hemby’s Children Hospital, the local partner hospital of St. Jude in Charlotte, NC, will unveil the Jeffery R. Dudan Family Kitchen.
AdvantaClean has committed itself to numerous charitable partnerships at the regional level since 2008. Our franchisees are involved in providing free services to families in need, including mold removal and water damage restoration. We want to give back to the communities we serve. Through our partnerships with local hospitals, our franchise owners have provided free residential mold and water damage cleanup to families with children suffering from cancer and weakened immune systems. Our partnership with St. Jude is our first national cause that aligns franchisees nationwide.
ABOUT ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the only National Cancer Institute devoted solely to the care of our country’s most vulnerable-our children. They are a comprehensive cancer center whose developed treatments have contributed to an increase in the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80% over the past 50 years. St. Jude’s goal is to increase the survival rate to 90% over the next decade. St. Jude is remarkable for never turning away a family for lack of ability to pay for treatment. St. Jude never wants a family to worry about anything other than their child and to bring them back home.
