Just a Coupon Calendar reminder!
Visitors to Knoxville Zoo will enjoy free admission and parking during the Knoxville Zoo’s Kroger Free Weekend this Saturday, Nov. 8, and Sunday, Nov. 9, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (Last admissions are one hour before closing at 3:30 p.m.)
Knoxville Zoo hosts Free Weekend to give everyone the opportunity to visit the zoo, say thanks for the community support the zoo receives throughout the year and help other local non-profit organizations. Although a donation is not required for free admission to Knoxville Zoo, Free Weekend visitors are encouraged to donate items to help Mission of Hope and Young-Williams Animal Center of Knoxville.
Mission of Hope is a volunteer organization providing assistance, aid and resources to those living in poverty-stricken areas in rural Appalachia. In order to help meet the increased demand of the holiday season, they are requesting donations of non-perishable food items and new children’s toys.
Young-Williams Animal Center serves the community by providing compassionate care to animals, working to find homes for adoptable pets, providing affordable spaying and neutering services, and educational programs about animal welfare. The center is in need of dry and canned dog, puppy, cat and kitten food and new pet toys.
