The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Field Support Office in Plano, TX was excited to contribute 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last fall, I had the opportunity to get a group together to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was an unbelievable 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 celebrate her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent her younger years wondering if and where she would get her next meal. In addition to providing meals to families in need, Minnie’s also holds classes to teach families how to utilize the food they receive to make healthy, long-lasting meals. They also give resume aid along with budgeting and job classes to help members of the community 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.
“All the team members were so thrilled that we had this food drive for them, and they even took time to show us their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
