LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct. 18, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “A new annual tradition for hoarding families has begun at 1800HOARDERS.COM,” stated Cory Chalmers the company’s President and Featured Expert on A&E’s smash hit “Hoarders.” Steri-Clean Inc. – the parent company of 1800HOARDERS – is looking for two needy families that would otherwise not be able to afford a clean-up and would like a team of volunteers to clean out and de-clutter their homes, just in time for the holidays.
Chalmers is looking for one home in Northern California and one in Southern California and is asking hoarders to submit their story to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of the e-mail they should write “Happy Hoardiday Applicant” and they should attach a photo of each room of their home, to the e-mail. Two winners will be selected and notified in the middle of November

“We are looking for volunteers, about 20 per site” says Chalmers. Anyone interested in volunteering to help with the cleanup and give a hoarding family a happier holiday is encouraged to call 1-800-HOARDERS (1-800-462-7337) or e-mail Steri-Clean directly at email@example.com.
