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 both painting two of their company vans pink for the fight against breast cancer.
Throughout 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 cure breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be contributing 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $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 fundraise for this great cause. In 2015, Fras-Air raised over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, General Manager of Fras-Air, 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 reported that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider explained. “While the quantity of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still represents a large number of families who are struggling with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
Service Experts of Raleigh’s General Manager, Chris Overton, seconded Schneider’s feelings. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in North Carolina – for women and men.”
