Molly Maid of Edmonds/Brier/Kenmore/Lake Forest Park donated nearly $700 to the local YWCA to support safe havens and community resources for families affected by domestic violence.

Owner Mark Stanley and Office Manager Angel Tabares presented the check as part of Molly Maid’s ongoing support of education and fundraising events for hundreds of safe houses and shelters across the United States.

“As a local business owner and resident,” Stanley said, “I am committed to giving back to the community.  Helping families is a perfect match for my employees, our customers and me.

“We've been providing residential maid services to the greater North King/South Snohomish area since 2007.  Every time my company cleans a home, a portion of the cost is set aside for our annual donation to combat domestic violence.”

Kari Hovorka, the Domestic Violence Coordinator for the City of Edmonds Police Department, was pleased to be present for the donation.  “It’s great when local companies make such generous donations to support domestic violence,” she said.

YWCA works closely with its clients to address abuse issues, create safety plans, provide crisis counseling and offer guidance to resources in the greater community.
