United Way’s Day of Caring at the Zoo

Volunteers were at the Zoo bright and early this morning to help with grounds-keeping and clean-up as part of the United Way of Greater Rochester‘s Day of Caring 2015. 178 More than 70 people from local companies including Bausch + Lomb, Paychex, Harris, RIT’s International Student Services, Center for Women and Gender and National Technical Institute for the Deaf, Thomson-Reuters and Brown & Brown all arrived in their United Way T-shirts and ready to work, dividing up and tackling areas throughout the Zoo. The exhibits of the rhino, snow leopards, eagle, raccoon, alligators and others all got a make over. Thank you to all the volunteers who participated today! We appreciate the hard work you did to make the Zoo an even more beautiful and welcoming place.
