CARROLLTON, Texas, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Jay Wireless joined forces with Minnie's Food Pantry in Plano, Texas on November 12th for a huge Thanksgiving event. Minnie's had a special day of giving, as they provided food for Thanksgiving meals to all that showed up on what turned out to be a beautiful Saturday. Blue Jay is no stranger to Minnie's, as they participate in their #giveaday program and volunteer at the food pantry quite often. This day would be a little different, as Blue Jay distributors were on hand to offer free Lifeline service and phones to those that qualified, to add to the Thanksgiving spirit and help out in the community. Minnie's had a huge crowd on hand to take advantage of the goodwill gift provided, and many people were able to sign up for a free cell phone while they were there.
Blue Jay Texas Regional Manager, Mitch Cook was there to coordinate the phone registration and distribution effort. He was overwhelmed by the turnout and stated, "This was my first time to attend an event at Minnie's and the response was amazing. The energy level was exciting, it felt like a block party. The DJ was playing music and keeping the crowd upbeat and entertained, as volunteers and recipients alike were dancing away."
Minnie's provides Thanksgiving meals annually to those in need. It is a special offering, over and above the normal distribution of meals throughout each month. With the holidays approaching, these Thanksgiving boxes of food are very helpful to many people in the community.
Mitch Cook also added, "Hundreds of those in need were served, and the line went all the way around the building. Other vendors were also there to assist. Plus, Blue Jay Wireless was giving away free phones to those in need, who qualified for the Lifeline service. It was an amazing, fun, energetic, and heartfelt event that had an immediate impact on the community. It was an honor to be a part of this!"
