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.
Throughout the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be giving 20% of all sales from their pink vans to the North Jersey Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help end breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be contributing 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 a couple of their vans pink to raise funds for breast cancer. In 2015, Fras-Air donated over $7,000 to Komen North Jersey. General Manager David Schneider and one of his employees both lost their mothers to different forms of cancer and were motivated to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute reported that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider said. “While the quantity of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still constitutes a huge number of families who are grappling with this disease, and there is still a serious need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, seconded Schneider’s feelings. “As reported by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in North Carolina – for both females and males.”
