On May 17 members of Plano West Rotary Club (PWRC) were thrilled to be joined by employees from DXC Technology at our meal distribution service project at Armstrong Middle School in east Plano. Twenty DXC employees from all over the U.S. helped our club pack meal boxes and distribute to families as a team-building initiative during their leadership conference in Plano.
For this entire school year, PWRC has assisted Plano Independent School District three times a month with drive-through meal distributions to Plano ISD students and their families at three campuses. These meal distributions help alleviate food insecurity among our community's underserved families. Our volunteers’ help allows Plano ISD teachers and staff to remain focused on their jobs.
On this specific day, Armstrong teachers had conducted STAAR testing all day, and Principal Melissa Blank thanked the volunteers for allowing the teachers to go home at the end of a long day rather than having to distribute meals in the hot sun for another hour.

Thank you, DXC, for serving Plano students and their families!
