We have been volunteering at the Akron Zoo for three years. During this time, we've had the opportunity to volunteer for various events, including Dream Night with Akron Children's Hospital, Boo at the Zoo, Cabin Fever Days in January, Mother's Day and Father's Day events, and Breakfast with the Bunny.
The Akron Zoo is home to more than 700 animals and is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, making it a world-class organization. For organizations like the Akron Zoo, volunteers share their personal experience, expertise and energy in educational programs and services. Volunteers help organizations like the Akron Zoo keep their costs down and affordable for visitors. We have found our experiences as volunteers very rewarding.
We hope you will join us in voting "For" Issue 3 on Nov. 5. This is not a new tax and is vital to keep the zoo growing and thriving.
