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 painting two of their work vans pink for the fight to end breast cancer.
During 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 donating 5% of all sales from their pink vans in addition to giving $10 for every heating 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 donated over $7,000 to Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, General Manager of Fras-Air, and one of his employees both lost their mothers to other forms of cancer and were inspired to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute reported that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider stated. “While the quantity of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still represents a significant number of families who are grappling with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
The General Manager of Service Experts of Raleigh, Chris Overton, echoed Schneider’s feelings. “As reported by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in our state – for men and women.”
