The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Corporate Office in Plano, TX was honored to give over 300 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last September, I had the chance to get a group together 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.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was started 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 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 use the food they get to cook healthy, long-lasting meals. They also provide resume help along with money-management 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 feed 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 showed our group their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
