This October, two of our Service Experts centers will be making a statement with pink vans. Fras-Air/General Service Experts and Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning of Raleigh are each going to paint two of their company vans pink for the fight against breast cancer.
For 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 cure breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be donating 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 time Fras-Air/General Service Experts has painted a couple of their vans pink to raise money for this great cause. In 2015, Fras-Air raised over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his employees both lost their mothers to other forms of cancer and were motivated to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute said that 107,184 women in New Jersey suffered from breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider explained. “While the amount of cases is actually declining each year, that still represents a huge number of families who are struggling with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, reiterated Schneider’s thoughts. “As reported by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in North Carolina – for men and women.”
