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 to end breast cancer.
Throughout the month of October, Fras-Air/General Service Experts will be giving 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 Precision 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 multiple vans pink to raise money for this great cause. In 2015, Fras-Air donated over $7,000 to Komen North Jersey. General Manager David Schneider and one of his employees both lost their mothers to other forms of cancer and were inspired 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 constitutes a large number of families who are grappling with this disease, and therefore we have an urgent need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, reiterated Schneider’s thoughts. “According to the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in our state – for men and women.”
