1-800-SWEEPER Foundation donates to the American Red Cross

Organization of power sweeping companies donates $5,000 to cause.

The 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation, the charitable foundation of 1-800-SWEEPER, was honored to give back to the community with a $5,000 donation to the American Red Cross at the National Pavement Expos’ Sweepers Night Out in Cleveland, OH on February 7, 2018.

1-800-SWEEPER is a nationwide service network of independently owned power sweeping companies, with over 50 company members, and founded the 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation in 2016.

It has joined forces with Schwarze Industries to sponsor a Hurricane Recovery Raffle to aid in disaster relief from the series of devastating hurricanes that hit the United States in late 2017.

The Hurricane Recovery Raffle offers a chance to win a brand new Schwarze Supervac Updraft power sweeper. Raffle tickets are still available, and will continue to be, until the goal of raising $100,000 is reached.

"1-800-SWEEPER Foundation was founded because 1-800-SWEEPER members had a desire to do more for the communities we serve,” said Mike Lucht, Founding Member of 1-800-SWEEPER. "It is heartbreaking to see all that has been lost and destroyed as a result of the 2017 hurricanes. We knew we had to do something and decided the raffle would be an excellent way to contribute to the relief efforts.”

“The Red Cross is pleased to accept such a generous donation from the 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation,” said Michael N. Parks, Regional CEO of Northeast Ohio American Red Cross. “The hurricane recovery and relief work will continue for many years, and this contribution will help in restoring homes, businesses, and lives.”

The 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation was founded in 2016 by 1-800-SWEEPER. The 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation exists to help communities clean up following natural disasters. They also contribute to qualified environmental and community beautification initiatives as well support local Wounded Warrior programs. 1-800-SWEEPER is a nationwide service network that brings sweeping companies from coast to coast under a unified marketing and service structure.
