Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) February 15, 2016
Portee Insurance reveals another remarkable charity campaign as part of its ongoing efforts to enrich the local community, this time supporting American Heart Awareness Month by fundraising for the American Heart Association and the millions of people it serves.

Heart disease is the number one killer in the world, and causes almost 800,000 American deaths each year. Stroke ranks second, and is a leading cause of severe disability. The American Heart Association funds innovative research, fights for stronger public health policies and provides critical tools and information to educate, save and improve lives through it’s more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters.
Ralph Portee, owner of Portee Insurance, attested, “We all have family and friends who have been affected by high blood pressure, heart disease or stroke. The American Heart Association does our community, and our entire country, an invaluable service with it’s research and public education programs. We believe many people will want to join our campaign and donate – after all, the next life saved might be someone they love.”
