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 both going to paint two of their company 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 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 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 funds for breast cancer. In 2015, Fras-Air donated over $7,000 to Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his technicians both lost their mothers to other forms of cancer and were moved to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute said that 107,184 women in New Jersey suffered from breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider said. “While the quantity of cases is actually going down each year, that still constitutes a large number of families who are grappling with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, seconded Schneider’s thoughts. “According to the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in the state – for women and men.”
