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 cure breast cancer. Service Experts of Raleigh will be contributing 5% of all sales from their pink vans and also donate $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 multiple vans pink to fundraise for Susan G. Komen. 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 explained. “While the quantity of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still leaves a significant number of families who are dealing with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
Service Experts of Raleigh’s General Manager, Chris Overton, reiterated Schneider’s feelings. “As reported by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in our state – for both females and males.”
