“The real winners here are all of our generous customers who continue to support their surrounding communities” – Austin Dressman

Roto-Rooter, North America’s largest provider of plumbing and drain repair services, is proud to announce its second annual Giving Thanks Food Drive. Throughout the month of November, customers receive a 10% discount on plumbing and drain cleaning services (up to $ 75 off) when they donate two cans for people or animals in need. All food donations are collected by the technician at the time of service and distributed to a local food bank or animal shelter in time for the holidays.
“This year, our goal is higher given the major challenges facing community food banks across the country due to COVID-19,” said Austin Dressman, marketing and communications manager. “Last year we collected more than 44,200 groceries (over 24 tons of groceries!) For food banks and animal shelters in our communities. This year, with additional help from our contractor locations, we hope to reach 70,000 items collected across the company. “
Every year, different Roto-Rooter locations and individual employees compete to collect most of the non-perishable goods. In 2019, the Cleveland office raised the largest percentage of donations, the security and risk management team raised the most donations from the home office, and Baltimore topped the list of call center categories. Frank Rivera from the Camden site single-handedly collected the most canned goods – with an impressive 707 items.
“The real winners here, of course, are all of our generous customers who continue to support their surrounding communities,” adds Dressman.
While canned food is generally preferred as a donation, other non-perishable items such as unopened packaged food are also accepted. Please note that all donated food must be before the expiration date.
