About

Clean Ones Cares

Charitable giving is an important part of what we do here at Clean Ones, which is why we’ve developed our Clean Ones Cares program to help support both our local and national communities. We work to support causes that are important to us and our consumers, such as the fight against hunger, women’s health, protecting animals, disaster relief and children’s educational opportunities. Clean Ones Cares strives to inspire others to get involved and help make a difference in the lives of others. We do this in the following ways:


Employee Volunteerism

Clean Ones employee volunteer program puts our company values into action. When an employee volunteers for a half day shift they are automatically eligible for a half day of compensatory time. Whether volunteering on their own or participating in team-building activities with co-workers, Clean Ones volunteer comp time program makes it easy for our employees to give back to their local communities.

Clean Ones has chosen the Oregon Food Bank as our local community partner because we believe that fighting hunger and its root causes is not only important, it is essential. Because of this philanthropic partnership, volunteering with the Oregon Food Bank is highly encouraged of all Clean Ones employees.
