Warshauer Electric Supply Raises Awareness for Heart Disease in Women

TINTON FALLS, NJ — Warshauer Electric Supply, a New Jersey based electrical distributor, supported the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign by participating in National Wear Read Day® on Friday, February 7, 2014. Warshauer became aware of the organization and National Wear Red Day after hearing Karin Jordan tell her story on 94.3 The Point, and knew immediately that they wanted to get involved.

Heart disease, also known as the silent killer, is the number one killer of women, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. In many cases, deaths can be prevented, but most women do not notice the symptoms until it is too late. For more than 10 years, the American Heart Association has sponsored National Wear Red Day to help raise awareness and fight against heart disease in women.

To help spread awareness and support this cause, Warshauer asked employees to participate by wearing red. Employees from all five branches dressed to show their support. Warshauer also replaced over 50 bulbs throughout their Lighting Design Center Five Star Showroom, located at its Tinton Falls Corporate Headquarters, with red bulbs.
