The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Corporate Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to contribute 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano, TX.
“Last fall, I had the opportunity to get a group of people to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was an incredible experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They do so much more than just collect food – they are a crucial part of this community.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was created by Cheryl Jackson as a way to celebrate her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent many of her childhood years wondering if and where she would receive her next meal. Minnie’s doesn’t just provide free, healthy meals to families in need, they also hold classes to teach families how to utilize the food they are given to create nutritious, long-lasting meals. They also give resume support along with financial 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 supply meals for six families for the month.
“All the team members were so ecstatic that we had this food drive for them, and they even took us around their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
