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 going to paint two of their work 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 their local Susan G. Komen chapter to help raise money to help fight 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 October 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 technicians both lost their mothers to alternative forms of cancer and were moved to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute says that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider stated. “While the amount of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still represents a huge number of families who are dealing with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
Chris Overton, the General Manager for Service Experts of Raleigh, echoed 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 men and women.”
