“Back in the Swing of Things” School Supply Drive
August 18 - August 19
Summer is almost over, and everyone is busy trying to get back in the swing of things in preparation for the coming school year. It makes us want to swing into action – so we found a way to give back to our community, and give a little back to you!
Help us give back
On Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19, we’ll be collecting backpacks (and other school supplies) at the Zoo to donate to two schools right here in our neighborhood – Harrell Budd Elementary School and Felix G. Botello Elementary School.
And we’ll give back to you!
If you bring a new, unused backpack to the Zoo on August 18 or 19, we’ll give you one (1) Family Four-Pack (two adult and two child admission tickets) for just $20! That’s a savings of $34 off regular admission prices!
And anyone who brings new, unused school supplies that same Saturday or Sunday will receive discounted admission to the Zoo.
* School supplies collected at the Zoo’s front entrance only.
