COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Columbus Zoo and NBC4 are teaming up to Stuff The Backpack for Columbus City School Students. And if you help the cause, you can take your family to the zoo for just $4!
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN THE $4 DAY?
Just bring a new backpack stuffed with school supplies to the zoo on August 1st or August 8th. You can see the list of essential supplies needed at the bottom of this article or by clicking here.
WHEN IS THE $4 DAY?
August 1st and August 8th at the Columbus Zoo from 9am to 7pm.
WHERE DO I DROP OFF WHEN I TO THE ZOO?
Look for the red NBC4 Tent and Flags at the main Columbus Zoo & Aquarium entrance before the ticket offices. At the NBC4 Tents, you will get a voucher for $4 dollar entry, valid for a family up to six people!
CAN I DROP OFF MORE THAN ONE BACKPACK?
Absolutely! Each backpack and supplies will help Columbus City Schools Students succeed from the first day of school and help teachers from reaching into their own pocket as we get ready to go back to school.
CAN I DONATE ANOTHER WAY AND GET THE DISCOUNT?
Unfortunately, no. However, you can click here to make a monetary donation to help our goal of providing a backpack filled with school supplies to each of the nearly 52,000 students in the Columbus City School District.
