Spirit of Giving: Food & Toy Drive

By Marisa Hicks, Marketing Coordinator

During the holiday season bring a non-perishable food item or a new and unwrapped toy when you visit the Zoo and receive $1 off your Zoo admission!

Partnered with 101.9 The Wolf the Zoo will raise donations for Toys for Tots and Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. The Zoo won the 2009 “Holiday Spirit of Giving” award for most pounds of food raised by a small company!

Through visitor donations in 2009 the Zoo raised 4,295 lbs. of food for the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and contributed to the 34,371 toys collected by Toys for Tots in Sacramento. We hope to do it again with your support!

The Zoo is proud to partner with two organizations that make such an impact on our community. The Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services provides free emergency goods and services to nearly 20,000 men, women and children every year. The Toys for Tots program ensures that families in need will be able to provide Christmas gifts through their annual services and toy donations. In 2009 they distributed 54,262 toys within Sacramento County from monetary donations and toy drives like the Zoo’s.
