The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Field Support 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 opportunity to get a group together to volunteer at Minnie’s and it was an incredible experience,” said Amanda Wilson, Operations Specialist for Service Experts. “They go above and beyond providing food – they are a critical part of this community.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was started by Cheryl Jackson as a way to honor her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent her younger years wondering if and where she would get 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 receive to create nourishing, long-lasting meals. They also give resume assistance along with money-management and job classes to help members of the community get back on their feet.
Since the families receive approximately 50 pounds of food to get them through the month, Service Experts was able to provide meals for six families for the month.
“Everyone was so excited that we had this food drive for the organization, and they even took time to show us their awesome facility,” Wilson said.
