The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Headquarters Office in Plano, TX was excited to give 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano, TX.
“Last fall, I had the chance 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 vital 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 many of her childhood years wondering if and where she would receive 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 create nutritious, long-lasting meals. They also provide resume aid along with financial 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 feed six families for the month.
“Everyone was so excited that we had this food drive for the organization, and they even showed our group their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
