The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Field Support Office in Plano, TX was honored to contribute more than 320 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in the Texas city.
“Last fall, 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 go above and beyond providing food – they are an essential part of this community.”
Cheryl Jackson began Minnie’s Food Pantry as a way to celebrate her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent much of her childhood 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 get to create healthy, long-lasting meals. They also provide resume support along with money-management 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.
“All the team members were so thrilled that we had this food drive for the organization, and they even took us around their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
