Workrite Uniform Company announces partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation
FR clothing manufacturer contributes to breast cancer awareness in support of women in industrial occupations
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, flame-resistant (FR) clothing manufacturer Workrite Uniform Co. announces its new partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), a leading breast cancer foundation providing early detection, education, and support services to women in need in all 50 states.
With a growing number of women entering industrial and fire service professions, Workrite Uniform recently launched a tailored women’s line developed specifically for women by women. The line, manufactured under the company’s Workrite® FR and Workrite® FR Fire Service brands, offers enhanced comfort and an improved fit for the female wearer. In support of women within these potentially hazardous fields and to generate awareness for breast cancer, Workrite Uniform is proud to become one of NBCF’s business-to-business partners.
“Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women, and one in eight women will be diagnosed with this disease in the U.S.,” said Lew White, Workrite Uniform’s VP of marketing and merchandising. “These are staggering statistics, and we are honored to be an official partner of National Breast Cancer Foundation. At Workrite Uniform Company, we recognize the crisis of breast cancer and are proud to offer our help in generating awareness and supporting research through our partnership with NBCF and the dedication of our women’s line to this renowned organization.”
Each garment in Workrite Uniform’s updated women’s line is to feature NBCF’s illustrious pink ribbon on the clothing tag. Workrite Uniform is also contributing a percentage of sales from these garments to NBCF.
Founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail, NBCF provides help and inspires hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, research, and support services.
