The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Corporate Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to donate over 300 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano, TX.
“Last fall, I had the chance to get a group of colleagues to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was an incredible experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They go beyond collecting food – they are an essential part of this community.”
Cheryl Jackson began Minnie’s Food Pantry as a way to honor her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent her younger years wondering if and where she would obtain her next meal. Not only does Minnie’s provide free healthy meals to families in need, they also hold classes to teach families how to use the food they get to create nutritious, long-lasting meals. They also provide resume assistance along with budgeting and job classes to help people get back on their feet.
Since each family receives around 50 pounds of food to last them a month, Service Experts was able to provide meals for six families for the month.
“Each member of the team was so thrilled that we had this food drive for Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even showed our group their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
