In October 2016, two Service Experts centers will be turning heads with pink vans. Fras-Air/General Service Experts and Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning of Raleigh are each painting two of their service vans pink for the fight to end breast cancer.
During the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be giving 20% of all sales from their pink vans to Summit-based Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help end breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be giving 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $10 for every heating 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 multiple vans pink to raise funds for this great cause. In 2015, Fras-Air was able to raise over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his technicians both lost their mothers to different forms of cancer and were motivated to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute said that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider said. “While the amount of cases is actually going down each year, that still leaves a huge number of families who are grappling with this disease, and therefore we have an urgent need for research and support.”
The General Manager of Service Experts of Raleigh, Chris Overton, reiterated Schneider’s feelings. “As reported by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in the state – for both females and males.”
