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 against 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 furnace tune-up to their local chapter, Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast.
This is the second year 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 other forms of cancer and were motivated to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute says that 107,184 women in New Jersey suffered from breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider explained. “While the quantity of cases is actually declining each year, that still represents a significant number of families who are grappling with this disease, and there is still a serious need for research and support.”
Service Experts of Raleigh’s General Manager, Chris Overton, echoed 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.”
