Every month, we choose one employee among all who volunteer and offer them the opportunity to direct a $250 donation from the Liberty Bank Foundation to their favorite nonprofit. Joe Burke from our Commercial Real Estate operation chose the Beardsley Zoo, the state’s only zoo.
Joe notes that with state budget cuts, the zoo relies more than ever on the generosity of the public. “Financial support for the zoo is important as it not only provides funds to acquire the necessary foods and health care for the animals, but it also assists in maintaining a wonderful setting.”
Joe (r) and his son, also Joe, present the donation to Gregg Dancho, Zoo Director. “It’s a recreational day for families to enjoy each other’s company while visiting tigers, buffalo, wolves, peacocks, and many other animals,” says Joe.
Here’s more in case you’d like to make a donation or spend a day at the zoo.
