East Dubuque, Ill., October 3, 2022 – Crescent Electric Supply Company, one of the nation’s largest independent distributors of electrical hardware and supplies, today announced it is helping raise awareness for breast cancer by offering pink buckets to customers who make a purchase at a participating branch in October.
The company partnered with 10 key suppliers for this promotion: L.H. Dottie; Kidde; 3M; Klein Tools; Burndy; Leviton; Ideal; Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems; Intermatic; and ABB.
“This month holds special meaning for many of us who have been impacted, directly or indirectly, by breast cancer," said Scott Teerlinck, President and CEO of Crescent. "We are very appreciative of these 10 supplier partners that are coming together to raise awareness and to commemorate those in our lives who have battled, and continue to battle, this horrific disease. While the promotion lasts only a month, our hope is that these buckets are used by our customers throughout the year to show support.”
When a customer makes a purchase at a Crescent or subsidiary branch during October, they will receive a free Pink Bucket, which includes the logos of all Crescent companies, along with these supplier partners. Additionally, Crescent is making a $10,000 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in honor of its employees, and their families and friends, impacted by cancer.

“Breast cancer became the most common cancer in the world,” said Myra Biblowit, President and CEO of BCRF. “It is our sole mission to eradicate this disease, but we can’t do it alone. We’re grateful for this partnership with Crescent Electric Supply Company to help us bring the end of breast cancer into focus, together.”
