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 both painting two of their work vans pink for the fight against breast cancer.
During the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be contributing 20% of all sales from their pink vans to Summit-based Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help cure breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be giving 5% of all sales from their pink vans plus $10 for every furnace 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 a couple of their vans pink to raise funds for breast cancer. In 2015, Fras-Air raised over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. General Manager David Schneider and one of his employees both lost their mothers to different forms of cancer and were moved to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute says that 107,184 women in New Jersey suffered from breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider said. “While the quantity of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still represents a significant number of families who are grappling with this disease, and that means there’s a serious need for research and support.”
Service Experts of Raleigh’s General Manager, Chris Overton, reiterated Schneider’s feelings. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in our state – for both females and males.”
