The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Headquarters Office in Plano, TX was thrilled to donate 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last year, I had the opportunity to get a group together to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was such an amazing experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They do so much more than just collect food – they are an essential 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 much of her childhood wondering if and where she would receive her next meal. In addition to providing meals to families in need, Minnie’s also holds classes to teach families how to incorporate the food they get to create nutritious, long-lasting meals. They also give resume assistance along with budgeting and job classes to help members of the community 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.
“Each member of the team was so excited that we had this food drive for Minnie’s Food Pantry, and they even showed our group their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
