Zoo Atlanta to Host City of Atlanta and Fulton County Family Days

Proudly supported by Walmart and The National PTA Urban Family Engagement Initiative

Zoo Atlanta will host City of Atlanta and Fulton County Family Days on Saturday, August 14 and Sunday, August 15, 2010. Proudly supported by Walmart and The National PTA Urban Family Engagement Initiative, the weekend offers free admission to guests who can demonstrate residence in the City of Atlanta and Fulton County or employment in either the City of Atlanta or Fulton County Government.

“Our organization is committed to our community and to ensuring that everyone in the City of Atlanta and Fulton County has an opportunity to benefit from our animals, mission and programs,” said Raymond King, Zoo Atlanta President and CEO. “We are deeply grateful to our partners at Walmart and The National PTA Urban Family Engagement Initiative for demonstrating their shared support for our belief that every family should be able to enjoy the Zoo, particularly in these difficult economic times.”

Free admission will be valid for two adults and up to four children per family. As an additional benefit, The National PTA Urban Family Engagement Initiative will distribute 500 free backpacks stocked with school supplies on Saturday, August 14. Backpacks will be distributed while supplies last and will be available on Saturday only. “The families of Atlanta have always played an integral role in PTA’s growth and development,” said Charles J. “Chuck” Saylors, National PTA President. “It is the home of one of our great past leaders and founder, Selena Sloan Butler, who paved the way for equality in education and parent involvement. Giving back to the families of this city forwards the passion that Selena brought to PTA and promotes our efforts to be a voice for all children.”

“We’re excited to join forces with Zoo Atlanta to give back to the communities we serve by offering the City of Atlanta and Fulton County residents a chance to save money and make memories,” said Karen Brewer-Edwards, Wal-Mart’s regional general manager for North Georgia. “Our partnership with Zoo Atlanta is a testament of our ongoing commitment to provide families with opportunities to live better.”

Recognized forms of identification for free admission during City of Atlanta and Fulton County Family Days are as follows:

City of Atlanta or Fulton County residents: Georgia Driver’s License; State of Georgia-issued voter identification; or water, gas or light utility bill demonstrating residence in the City of Atlanta or Fulton County.

City of Atlanta or Fulton County Government Employees: City of Atlanta employee identification card or Fulton County Government employee identification card.

City of Atlanta and Fulton County Family Days hosted by Zoo Atlanta in previous years were extremely well-attended; guests should expect unusually high volume on both of these days. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early and to consider MARTA travel, as parking will be limited. For more information, visit zooatlanta.org.
