The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Headquarters Office in Plano, TX was excited to contribute more than 320 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last September, I had the chance to get a group of colleagues to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was an unbelievable experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They do so much more than just collect food – they are a vital part of this community.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was started by Cheryl Jackson 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 incorporate the food they are given to create nourishing, long-lasting meals. They also provide resume help along with budgeting and job classes to help families 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 excited that we had this food drive for Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even showed our group their amazing facility,” Wilson said.
