The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Field Support Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to donate more than 320 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last September, I had the opportunity 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 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 many of her childhood years wondering if and where she would obtain 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 make healthy, long-lasting meals. They also offer resume help along with financial and job classes to help families get back on their feet.
Since the families receive approximately 50 pounds of food to get them through the month, Service Experts was able to provide meals for six families for the month.
“Everyone was so thrilled that we had this food drive for the organization, and they even took us around their amazing facility,” Wilson said.
