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 September, 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 beyond collecting food – they are a crucial 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 get 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 use the food they receive to cook healthy, long-lasting meals. They also give resume support along with money-management and job classes to help members of the community 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 feed six families for the month.
“Everyone was so ecstatic that we had this food drive for them, and they even showed our group their incredible facility,” Wilson said.
