I know what you’re thinking, “What does a maid service company have to do with changing lives?” We didn’t know either — until our trip to Belize.
Every year, the MaidPro staff and franchisees takes a team-building Adventure Trip to a new destination. Planning the 2013 Adventure Trip to Belize, we decided to visit an orphanage in Belize. Beforehand, we asked the children's home staff what they needed. There was the expected items (clothing, shoes) and needs we wouldn’t have thought of like undergarments (because they can’t be passed down from child to child), printer ink, and even a WII controller.
So we packed extra suitcases,
one for each child.
Although we prepared for the visit, no amount of planning could have equipped us for our experience in those few hours at the children's home. We were incredibly moved and inspired by the kids, who were overjoyed with the clothes and shoes, and even more just having us there to play, laugh, hug, and share.
After the trip, we knew that we couldn’t let our experience become just another “nice memory” from that one time we went to Belize. That’s how MaidPro Cares came to be.
