The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Field Support Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to give 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 such an amazing experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They go beyond collecting 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 much of her childhood wondering if and where she would obtain her next meal. Not only does Minnie’s 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 offer resume aid along with financial and job classes to help people 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 feed six families for the month.
“Everyone was so excited that we had this food drive for Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even showed our group their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
