Two Service Experts centers are making a statement this October with pink vans. Fras-Air/General Service Experts and Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning of Raleigh are each going to paint two of their company vans pink for the fight cure breast cancer.
For the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be donating 20% of all sales from their pink vans to the North Jersey Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help cure breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be contributing 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $10 for every furnace tune-up to their local chapter, Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast.
This is the second time Fras-Air/General Service Experts has painted multiple vans pink to raise money for Susan G. Komen. In 2015, Fras-Air raised over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. General Manager David Schneider and one of his workers both lost their mothers to different forms of cancer and were moved to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute says that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider stated. “While the amount of cases is actually going down each year, that still represents a large number of families who are grappling with this disease, and therefore we have a serious need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, echoed Schneider’s sentiments. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in our state – for women and men.”
