The WCS Food and Toy Drive

The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo and the Food Bank of New York City have been joined by the Bronx Borough President for a toy and food drive to help the less fortunate this holiday season.

Throughout the end of December, the Bronx Zoo will be collecting toys and food for New Yorkers in need. Donations can be dropped off at the park entrance, or inside at the Zoo Center. Every new, unwrapped toy or grocery bag filled with ten packaged food items will provide the donor with a free general admission ticket to the zoo (four per family). The tickets are valid until June 30th of next year.
