The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Headquarters Office in Plano, TX was honored to donate over 300 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last fall, I had the chance to get a group of colleagues to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was an incredible 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 started by Cheryl Jackson 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 make nourishing, long-lasting meals. They also offer resume help along with budgeting and job classes to help families get back on their feet.
Since each family receives around 50 pounds of food to last them a 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 Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even took time to show us their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
