The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Corporate Office in Plano, TX was excited to contribute more than 320 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last fall, I had the chance 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 created 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 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 use the food they are given to create nourishing, long-lasting meals. They also provide resume help along with money-management 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.
“All the team members were so ecstatic that we had this food drive for Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even showed our group their amazing facility,” Wilson said.
