Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes

Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes. Info here!

Simple Solution. Big Reward.

After big holiday meals, no one likes to be stuck doing the clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drip-pings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could ruin your holiday and cost you a bundle.

When fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes causing messy sewer backups and expensive cleanup and repair.

The solution:
Pour the grease into a can, freeze it, and toss the can in the trash!

Serving warm food, warm smiles

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on everything you’ve been given, and be grateful for all that you have.

Take the time to give thanks for all that’s good in your life -- and give to others who may not share the same good fortune this Thanksgiving.

Give from the heart

Help brighten the holiday for someone in need.

  • Donate time or money to a local charity or food pantry
  • Donate a Thanksgiving basket to a neighbor in need
  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter
  • Deliver Thanksgiving meals to housebound seniors

Volunteer this holiday, and share the season!

Have a safe Thanksgiving weekend.
