National Custodial Worker Day is commemorated on October 2nd of every year. Often some professions are under-appreciation, and this is true with the custodial workers too. Pay your honour and tribute to those men and women who clean every floor. National Custodial Worker Day recognizes and appreciated these custodial workers who operate behind to provide outstanding services.
“In my early teens, I was a janitor. In high school, I got up early to deliver to accounts that required early service.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin
History of National Custodial Worker Day
The history and origin of the National Custodial Worker Day are unknown. It is otherwise known as National Custodial Worker Recognition Day. The day aims in appreciating and thanking the custodial workers for what they do every day. Imagine how your floor will look when it is not cleaned for two days? Custodial workers mop floors, clean toilets, take out the garbage and keep the places clean and well maintained. Celebrating a day for these workers are indeed a priceless thing. They work in office buildings, schools, colleges, hospitals, museums, churches and other buildings. These workers often get up early and finish their work before others. The hard work done every day by these custodial workers is often taken for granted and unnoticed. Cleanliness is next to godliness and why not a day for those who provide us with a clean surrounding? Those people, of course, deserve a special day celebration.
