CoServ Employees donated 577 pounds of food to the Texas Legends Mission of the Month Thanksgiving food drive on Friday. When combined with the contributions from the Legends and Legacy Plumbing, the food drive will feed about 200 families this Thanksgiving.
Britney Wynn, vice president of community and media relations at the Texas Legends, credited CoServ and Legacy Plumbing for coming together for a great cause. Half the food was distributed at a drive-thru food drive at Comerica Center in Frisco while the other half was donated to LovePacs for their Thanksgiving Mobile Pantry.
“Families can drive by no registration required, no questions asked and pick up a box of Thanksgiving food,” Britney said. “We are in the middle of the season so our staff couldn’t do this alone. We are super grateful to our partners over at CoServ and Legacy Plumbing for their help and the other volunteers coming from around the community.”
In addition to the non-perishable food, the Legends donated about 100 turkeys, to families at the drive-thru food drive and LovePacs’ mobile food pantry.
LovePacs is a local non-profit organization whose primary mission is to provide food for children in need. It works closely with school districts and communities including Aubrey, Denton, Frisco, Lewisville, Little Elm and Plano.
CoServ collected food from Employees in the lobby of its Corinth headquarters.
CoServ Customer Care Specialist Leepora Thomas donated a carload of groceries to the food drive, which inspired the rest of her Correspondence team to also donate.
“It’s a tragedy to see those that for whatever reason go without a decent meal or are less fortunate than we are,” Leepora said. “Feeding the hungry and helping the less fortunate is so gratifying and makes this world a much better place, especially during these times.”
CoServ Customer Care Supervisor Dori Haines said she was proud of her team for making a sizable contribution.
“I am so very proud of my Correspondence Team members – they are so very thoughtful and so generous,” Dori said. “They made a big difference and it’s a pleasure to work with each and every one of them.”
Britney said this food drive shows the generosity of strangers during a difficult time.
“We’re hoping that these families realize that they are loved and cared for,” Britney said.
It’s that mission the Legends and CoServ were able to accomplish with the food drive. It’s also one that they’ll continue to try to meet each month moving forward with their Mission of the Month program.
