Since the COVID-19 Pandemic began, Miniat has worked rigorously to enhance our already stringent safety procedures to address new requirements set forth by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and WHO (World Health Organization). You can read more about our operational response HERE.
However, our response to COVID goes far beyond operational plans. As a family-owned and operated business five generations strong, we are beholden to no one but our customers, employees, and the community that we are Driven to ServeTM. Decisions, particularly in a crisis, are made with the MINIAT CARES focus of People First.
Here are just a few examples of how Miniat employees and the organization have come together to live this value.
Supporting Our Employees: “Kick COVID To The Curb” Kits
Miniat team members enjoyed a safer Memorial Day weekend this year courtesy of the company’s complimentary “Kick COVID to the Curb” kits. Employees each received a kit with hand sanitizer, masks, gloves, toilet paper, a measuring tape, and other hard-to-find items designed to keep families safe at home every day. The kit also included a recipe for homemade bleach disinfectant, a scarce item at any store.
Supporting Our Community: Food Pantry Donations
Miniat employees live our motto “driven to serve” daily. That was exemplified once again as Miniat volunteers delivered 4,320 pounds of meat including chicken, beef, pork carnitas, and barbacoa to the Thornton Food Pantry. The $20,000+ donation was especially welcome as the pantry served almost 2,000 boxes within the communities that many of our employees call home.
