As a whole, Car Wrap City, believes firmly in giving back and we have a few ways we enjoy doing so. Really, that’s the key: finding a charity, cause or organization that speaks to you and that you enjoy being a part of, and running with it. Maybe you, like so many of us, are short on time and/or resources, but that doesn’t mean you have nothing to offer!
To see some of the non-profits we’ve worked with or organizations we enjoy giving to, check out our "giving back" tab.
It's our honor to help Minnie's Food Pantry spread the word about their wonderful organization.
"Minnie’s Food Pantry receives no government support and is 100% community funded. Long term underemployment, unemployment and the high cost of food, gas, utilities and rent are forcing more and more people to seek emergency food. ... The solution is simple. All it takes is great volunteers with a desire to impact the community every time they serve at Minnie’s Food Pantry. ... Minnie’s Food Pantry has brought light to the issue of food insecurity on both a local and national level. We have been featured on: The Food Network’s documentary, Hunger Hits Home, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight, The Talk and The Steve Harvey Show, amongst others. Minnie’s Food Pantry was also featured on The American Bible Challenge where #TeamMinnies won $25,000 to continue the fight against hunger."
Their serving days and times are: Wednesday-Friday and 1st-4th Saturday’s of each month 8:30AM-11AM
Minnie's Food Pantry located at 3033 W. Parker Rd Suite 116 Plano, TX 75023
Still not very sure? Here are some quick ideas on how you can get the entire family involved:
- Have your kids help stuff gallon size ziplock bags with protein-rich snacks and toiletries to hand out to the homeless.
- Go read to the elderly at a local nursing home.
- Help your children to remove anything they’ve outgrown and take it to a Woman’s shelter.
