Helping Our Heroes: FREE 3-Hour Housecleaning for Veterans

The Helping Our Heroes program is the brainchild of Mary and Art James, owners of HAYS Cleaning, Inc.

Art James is a disabled Vietnam Veteran who was recently awarded compensation benefits after a lengthy appeals process. During the last several years, Art and Mary faced many challenges. They could not have gone through everything without their family, friends and so many others who offered support, prayers and so much more. Art and Mary feel that God has put them in the right place and at the right time. He has always provided their daily needs along the way.

They, along with HAYS Cleaning, Inc., wanted to help other heroes, to pay it forward. Their desire to give back inspired the birth of the Helping Our Heroes program in 2010. For Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the program provides complimentary cleanings to veterans, their spouses and active service men and women. For Veterans Day 2011, Art and Mary decide to add a new element to the program by collecting care package items to send to service men and women overseas. In December 2011, Art and Mary, along with HAYS Cleaning, shipped 15 boxes of goods to the troops.
