MCCAP participant LaQuata Williams owner White Glove Cleaning Solutions LLC
Cleaning for a Cause is a volunteer initiative by White Glove Cleaning Solutions in partnership with the Kim Jacobs Breast Cancer Research Center that offers free home cleaning to cancer patients in the Akron area. Their goal is to relieve cleaning duties of patients and their families who are recovering, in active treatment, or in hospice. They believe that removing this burden allows patients and their families to focus on patient health and spending valuable time with loved ones.
After losing her father Ralph J. Chatman in 2015 to pancreatic cancer and multiple relatives on her father’s side to the same cancer, LaQuata Williams wanted to provide a way to give back, provide encouragement and help to cancer patients. As the owner of White Glove Cleaning Solutions she started Cleaning for a Cause in June 2021 to do just that. She reached out to Lavar Jacobs Sr. founder of Not Just October – a non-profit that Lavar Jacobs Sr started in memory of his mother, Kim Jacobs, who passed away in 2009 from breast cancer to expand the knowledge, education, and resources among breast cancer patients, survivors, and supporters.
The women who receive service, love it because it is one less thing to worry about and allows them to spend that precious time focusing on family and getting better.
LaQuata Williams is a 2021 MCCAP participant and was featured in a Spectrum commercial for the Pay It Forward campaign.
