MAID OK Giving Back to the Community

Throughout the year, we try to find ways to give back to our community. This year, we thought what better way to give back than to volunteer? Last Saturday, our Maids with a Mission decided to put the cleaning supplies aside for a day and pick up some power tools. We partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help construct a home for a family in need. After donning our tool belts and working boots, our framing manager, Saizar gave us our instructions for what we were to accomplish as a team throughout the day.  

As the day went on, our Maids with a Mission discovered that cleaning was not their only talent. Around the construction site, our maids could be found using reciprocating saws and erecting various parts of the wooden frame and trellises over the garage. As the home slowly went up, we realized how much progress we were gaining through our teamwork. Progress that we could not have achieved without our maids’ desire to contribute and get the job done. 

We’re excited to say that we learned a lot through our volunteering experience. One takeaway for us was the wide variety of tools and construction vocabulary we learned, in addition to the complex process that goes into constructing a home. As well, we learned the gratification of lending a helping hand and being able to make a difference in the lives of those in need. We work diligently every day with our cleaning services, but we are proud to have had the opportunity to apply our work ethic to such a wonderful cause.
