Anyone who walked into the office of Habitec Security in Toledo, Ohio, on February 7 would have been greeted by an office building illuminated in red. Once inside, the sea of red was even stronger, as employees proudly sported red in honor of National Wear Red Day.
On that day, people across the country wear red to increase awareness of heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of women, claiming more female lives than all forms of cancer combined.
Habitec supported that cause with a $500 donation to the American Heart Association. Employees contributed $5 to wear jeans, enjoyed a heart-healthy lunch and received complimentary blood pressure screenings. The company’s service and installation also distributed red ribbons to customers during the day to raise awareness for the cause.
“Habitec Security is proud to support the Go Red for Women campaign and to share the signs and symptoms of heart disease and the importance of prevention. This is just one way we can make a difference in the community and with our employees. Together, we want to help put an end to heart disease,” said John Smythe, the company’s president.
