Home Clean Heroes

A first responder will win an all-expense-paid trip to New York City to attend the iconic Thanksgiving Day Parade

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Home Clean Heroes, the residential cleaning company known for its mission to give back to local first responders, will honor one lucky first responder with an all-expense-paid trip to New York City to attend the iconic Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.

The winner and up to three guests will also take part in a breakfast thanking area first responders on Thanksgiving morning, along with front-row views of the iconic parade down 6th Avenue. Last year, more than 1,500 people, including children and families of first responders lost or injured in the line of duty from New York and New Jersey, attended the pre-parade event.

“The day that our nation sets aside to give thanks is the perfect time to reward a first responder family this way,” said Home Clean Heroes President Joe Delatte. “When families gather for Thanksgiving dinner, we hope they take a moment to remember what our police officers, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics and 911 dispatchers have done for them, for their communities, and for our country.”

Home Clean Heroes donates a portion of the proceeds from every home they clean to first responders, through their Heroes First Initiative. Since the launch of the program, Home Clean Heroes has raised more than $26,000 in partnership with the First Responders Children’s Foundation. The money goes directly to the children and families of the brave first responders who put their lives on the line every day for their community. Home Clean Heroes hopes to donate a total of $25,000 toward the cause this year.

“Home Clean Heroes is a rock-solid partner in helping U.S. first responder families, and FRCF couldn’t be more pleased to offer this VIP viewing experience for the New York City Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to their contest winner,” said First Responders Children’s Foundation President Jillian Crane. “This spectacular annual breakfast event will feature first responder heroes from New York and across the nation, along with more than 1,000 family members. FRCF salutes Home Clean Heroes for remembering those who serve us each day, as the company continues its rapid and much deserved growth.”
