The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Corporate Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to donate 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last fall, I had the opportunity to get a group of colleagues to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was such an amazing experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They go above and beyond providing food – they are a vital part of this community.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was created by Cheryl Jackson as a way to recognize 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 get to create nutritious, long-lasting meals. They also give resume help along with financial and job classes to help people get back on their feet.
Because around 50 pounds of food is given to each family to last them a month, Service Experts was able to supply meals for six families for the month.
“Each member of the team was so ecstatic that we had this food drive for Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even took time to show us their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
