First responders are the backbone of many communities. Police officers, firefighters, emergency room doctors and nurses, and others put their lives on the line daily to serve and protect their neighbors and perfect strangers.

Since they began franchising in 2019, Home Clean Heroes has made it their mission to give back to first responders and they’re upping the ante this fall. The commercial home cleaning company is holding a contest that will award one lucky first responder and up to three guests a trip to New York City to attend the annual Thanksgiving Day parade.

Home Clean Heroes is partnering with the First Responders Children’s Foundation to offer roundtrip flights and hotel accommodations for two nights in the Big Apple. The winner will also receive an invitation to the VIP Thanksgiving Day Parade & Breakfast, hosted the First Responders Children’s Foundation and receive front row views of the iconic parade. It’s a one-of-a-kind event.   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 contest closes on August 31st and those interested can nominate a first responder at . The contest is open to police officers, firefighters, EMT, 911 operators, and emergency room doctors and nurses.
