WESTERLY, RI.,- At the age of 10, Cassandra Lin decided she wanted to help the less fortunate in her community.

      She gathered her friends and came up with Project TGIF- Turning Grease Into Fuel. They collect used cooling oil from restaurants, refine it, then distribute it to families that can’t afford to heat their homes.

      So far, the organization has collected 130,000 gallons of cooking oil and donated $81,000 to help those in need.
