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 company vans pink for the fight cure breast cancer.
During the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be donating 20% of all sales from their pink vans to the North Jersey Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help fight breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be donating 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $10 for every Precision 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 Susan G. Komen. In 2015, Fras-Air donated over $7,000 to Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his workers 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 had breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider stated. “While the number of cases is actually going down each year, that still leaves a large number of families who are dealing with this disease, and that means there’s a serious need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, reiterated Schneider’s feelings. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in the state – for both females and males.”
