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 company vans pink for the fight cure breast cancer.
For the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be donating 20% of all sales from their pink vans to Summit-based Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help fight breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be giving 5% of all sales from their pink vans plus $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 breast cancer. In 2015, Fras-Air donated over $7,000 to Komen North Jersey. General Manager David Schneider 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 reported that 107,184 women in New Jersey had breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider stated. “While the quantity of cases is actually declining each year, that still represents a large number of families who are grappling with this disease, and there is still an immediate need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, seconded Schneider’s sentiments. “As reported by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in North Carolina – for women and men.”
