Giving back to our community is an activity our team enjoys doing year-round. Each month, our team chooses a nonprofit organization to support with a service project or donation. With the holiday season coming up, we recognized that hunger is an issue that affects hundreds of families in our community and we wanted to do something to help.
In September, we volunteered at Minnie’s Food Pantry. Minnie’s is one of the largest food pantries in Collin County and, as a member of Feeding America®, the North Texas Food Bank and GuideStar, the food bank serves low income families. Hunger must continually be addressed in North Texas and Minnie’s works every day to be the “voice of the hungry.”
Our team had the opportunity to help organize the food bank warehouse and prepare for the upcoming holiday season. We unloaded and sorted 400 pounds of food from eight pallets that will be used to give meals to local families for Thanksgiving.
To help the cause further, our team made a monetary donation, which will help provide an additional 600 meals to the families in our community. Additionally, we donated 10 wooden pallets for Minnie’s to use and reuse for food storage. Skinny IT has offered to be a resource for this need in the future.
We appreciate the opportunity to give back as a team and look forward to working with Minnie’s in the future! To learn more about Minnie’s Food Pantry and how you can help fight hunger, visit http://www.minniesfoodpantry.org/.
