Giving Thanks Food Drive
Roto-Rooter locations across the country participate in our annual Pet Rescues Giving Thanks Food Drive each November. Customers can donate 2 cans or non-perishable goods in return for 10% off any plumbing or drain service (up to $75 off) at participating locations. The donations can be human or pet food – either way, we will make sure they get to a local food bank or your neighborhood Humane Society just in time for the holidays.
Last year, we collected more than 44,286 items for donation throughout the month for local food banks and pet shelters! That’s over 48,000 pounds or 24 tons of food - enough to feed more than 24 adults 3 full meals a day for an entire year.
Thanks to you we are able to provide countless individuals, families and pets with food this holiday season.
Roto-Rooter locations across the country will be competing to see which location can collect the most items for donation. We will post weekly updates throughout the food drive as we try to reach our 2020 goal of collecting 70,000 pounds of food for donation!
In 2019, our Cleveland branch and Baltimore Call Center collected the largest percentage of donations. Frank Rivera of our Camden location singlehandedly collected the most donations with a total of 707! And our Safety and Risk Management team collected the most donations at our home office.
