This October, two of our Service Experts centers will be making a statement with pink vans. Fras-Air/General Service Experts and Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning of Raleigh are both painting two of their service vans pink for the fight against breast cancer.
During the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be donating 20% of all sales from their pink vans to their local 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 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 October Fras-Air/General Service Experts has painted a couple of their vans pink to fundraise for this great cause. In 2015, Fras-Air raised over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his workers both lost their mothers to different forms of cancer and were inspired to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute said that 107,184 women in New Jersey suffered from breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider explained. “While the amount of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still leaves a significant number of families who are struggling with this disease, and that means there’s an urgent need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, reiterated Schneider’s thoughts. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in the state – for men and women.”
