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. For six years, his family was in the “appeal process” to get the compensation benefits that he not only is entitled to, but fought for, for our One Nation Under God. In September 2011, Art received his decision for entitlement.

During the last several years, Art and Mary faced many, many, many challenges. They feel that God has so blessed them beyond belief…but believe it! 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.

Mary and Art, along with HAYS Cleaning, Inc., wanted to Help Our Heroes, to Pay It Forward. Their desire to give back is what inspired the birth of the Helping Our Heroes program, which was launched for Memorial Day 2010. It was repeated for Veterans Day 2010 and has continued every Memorial Day and Veterans Day since that time.

In the past 5 years, HAYS Cleaning has provided over 108 hours of complimentary cleaning services for area veterans, active military, their spouses and parents. Mary and Art would like to offer the services to more veterans in the area but funding the project has become difficult due to labor and supply costs. The pair would like to provide services for at least 30 veterans this November. They have started a GoFundMe page at to collect donations to help fund the cost of this program.
