The Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning Headquarters Office in Plano, TX was honored to give 324 pounds of food to Minnie’s Food Pantry, also located in Plano.
“Last September, I had the ability 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 above and beyond providing food – they are a vital part of this community.”
Minnie’s Food Pantry was created by Cheryl Jackson as a way to honor her mother, Minnie Hawthorne-Ewing D.D., who spent much of her childhood 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 incorporate the food they get 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 ecstatic that we had this food drive for them, and they even took us around their incredible facility,” Wilson said.
