To help parents with NICU babies,  Julie Dickens of McKinney offering to clean up their yards free for two weeks.

Julie Dickens of McKinney knows first-hand the pressure families are under when their newborn requires a longer stay in the hospital. For five years the Dallas-area entrepreneur worked in the neonatal intensive care unit, or NICU, at Baylor All Saints Hospital, in Fort Worth.

When she became pregnant in 2006 she wanted more time to be a mom, and she and her husband purchased a DoodyCalls franchise for the Dallas Metro Area. DoodyCalls is the nation’s leading pet waste cleanup franchise, with specially trained crews and fleets of service trucks.

To help parents with NICU babies, her crews are offering to clean up their yards free for two weeks.

“I have a special place in my heart for these families. I know how exhausting their experience is and the last thing they need to worry about is picking up after their pet. I want to do something special and this is my way of giving back,” Dickens says.
