Manasquan, NJ - August 08, 2013 - Professional building tools and materials distributor AWarehouseFull is teaming up with The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), as part of a multi-pronged relief effort for Hurricane Sandy that was announced by Andrew N. Liveris, Dow Chairman & CEO in November 2012. The two companies will donate insulation and air sealing products from Dow Building Solutions, including FROTH-PAK™ to New York Says Thank You and Gateway Church of Christ relief programs.

Together, these products and our industry knowledge will help rebuild a stronger, safer and more energy efficient community.” AWarehouseFull sells a full line of air sealing, insulation and weatherization solutions from Dow Building Solutions.
