Frier Levitt of Pine Brook continued its “20 Charitable Acts for 20 Years” initiative in last month when members of the firm, both virtual and in the office, wore red to support the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women.” On Feb. 5, Frier Levitt members wore red on National Wear Red Day, to spread awareness that one in three women die from cardiovascular disease. The firm committed to donate funds for each of its employees who wore red, and their efforts netted a $350 donation from the firm to the American Heart Association, the announcement said. “Go Red for Women” seeks to increase women’s heart health awareness and improve the lives of women globally. For 17 years, the movement has encouraged awareness.
