Nonprofit Insider: September 18, 2020
RIP to classic water cooler gossip! Hit us up on... Slack? Postal mail?
Don't worry, the Nonprofit Insider has you covered!
Erie Zoo has an Opportunity for YOU!
Erie Zoo is adding a spooky (but supportive) twist to their classic ZooBOO this year with a fun theme - #EerieStrong!

The Zoo team is asking that you, the nonprofits, help decorate the display for the ZooBOO train ride. Nonprofits are invited to paint a family-friendly display (representing your organization) on plywood board. The Erie Community Foundation has graciously provided the 4’x8’ plywood boards for you to pick up from the Zoo. All you need to do is paint it and deliver the finished product to the Zoo no later than October 8th.

If your team is interested in participating please contact Emily Smicker ASAP or by September 30th at or (814) 864-4091 x272 to register and share your idea!
