A Williamson County company is helping to kick off the 2019-20 school year with a back-to-school classroom cleaning supplies drive Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the CVS store off Hillsboro Road in Franklin.
Maid Right of Williamson County, a locally owned and operated cleaning company, is working in collaboration with Franklin Special School District to provide cleaning supplies to support the teachers at Poplar Grove Elementary Schooland give them the tools they need to create supportive, safe and healthy classrooms.
According to FSSD, 15.7 percent of its student population is classified as “economically disadvantaged,” students who come from families below the poverty line. These kids often need a boost. To support their teachers, Maid Right is asking the community to consider donating disinfectant wipes, electronic wipes, hand sanitizer and baby wipes.
By providing classroom cleaning supplies for these classrooms, Maid Right of Williamson County is following through on its promise to support local schools. The company hopes to provide enough cleaning supplies for all 20 classrooms at Poplar Grove.
“Receiving cleaning supplies to help rid classrooms of germs and to keep our school learning environment clean will serve two primary purposes,” Poplar Grove Elementary Principal Alisha Erickson said. “It will ward off germs to help keep children healthy and in school and it will allow our teachers to maintain their focus on the educational needs of our students.”
Maid Right of Williamson County is also taking the opportunity to unveil its new nonprofit initiative, Kids-Lift, which will support kids year-round. Larry Hubbard, owner of the company, said that Kids-Lift is a natural continuation of Maid Right’s commitment to the local community.
Donations are accepted at the CVS at 101 Farrier Lane, where Maid Right staff will be tabling.
Maid Right of Williamson County services Franklin, Thomson’s Station, Spring Hill, Nolensville, Nashville and Murfreesboro. It delivers non-toxic, eco-friendly, floor-to-ceiling house cleanings. For more information, contact Hubbard at (615)722-7797.
