NATIONAL CLEANING EXPO
On July 28th-30th 2011, Clean and Green Solutions, of Houston Texas and Kingwood Texas, attended the National Cleaning Expo East. Main Sail Suites Resort and Hotel in Tampa, Florida was the host venue. Approximately 200 other Pressure Cleaning and Roof Cleaning Contractors attended. Also in attendance were Window Cleaning, Grafitti Removal, Wood Deck Cleaning and Restoration Contractors. Plus many other exterior cleaning contractors.
PRIORITY OF SAFETY
The National Cleaning Expo East is an organization that invites contractors and distributors serious about safe environmental exterior cleaning services. They are also serious about pollution control for residential neighborhoods and commercial properties. Additionally, Exterior Cleaning Contractors are able to take classes and earn Certification. Areas such as Wash Water Control, Roof Cleaning, Safety and Risk Management, and others are covered.
The EPA brings representatives to teach classes on proper discharge compliance. In addition, the Florida Highway Patrol taught rules of the road as it applies to trucks and trailers in the cleaning industry. Also, many other important issues were discussed as they relate to our industry.
MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION
The highlight of the weekend though was when we were able to participate along with all the other contractors in raising over $5500.00 for the Make A Wish Foundation. Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. Thus, the Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 250,000 children around the world.
GRASSROOTS MISSION FULFILLMENT
It has become one of the world’s most well-known charities. Yet, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has maintained the grassroots fulfillment of its mission.
A network of nearly 25,000 volunteers enable the Make-A-Wish Foundation to serve children with life-threatening medical conditions. Volunteers serve as wish granters, fundraisers, special events assistants and in numerous other capacities.
Make-A-Wish also depends on the hearts and donations of fundraising opportunities as well. At The National Cleaning Expo a dunk tank was available on Thursday Night. Many contractors eagerly and without reservation paid $10.00 each for the opportunity to dunk a few of their colleagues. Additionally, all weekend a raffle was held to auction off a Pressure Washer Unit. It had a value of $1600.00 and was donated by Paul Kassander of powerwashstore.com. Kory Finley of National Cleaning Expo East and owner of K and J Pressure Cleaning, Tampa, FL donated a twin pump roof cleaning system valued at $900.00
Pictured here are a group of contractors that made donations of $100.00 or more. Clean and Green Solutons is proud to be in this group after donating $200.00 to this fund raising event for Make-A-Wish. Every contractor that attended the event commented in one way or another. They stated that the best part of the weekend was taking part in donating money. And knowing that we were all able to help make a child’s with come true.
