The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Headquarters Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to give 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last fall, I had the opportunity to get a group of people 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 an essential part of this community.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was started by Cheryl Jackson as a way to recognize her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent her younger years wondering if and where she would receive her next meal. Not only does Minnie’s provide free healthy meals to families in need, they also hold classes to teach families how to utilize the food they are given to cook nutritious, long-lasting meals. They also give resume help 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 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 us around their incredible facility,” Wilson said.
