Give Back

Starting on November 5, WCS will launch its annual holiday toy drive. Donations are being collected for the families of veterans and active duty members of the military and New York City families in need. Below you will find the efforts being organized for these collections and how you can help.



WCS Toy Drive

Thank you for joining the Bronx Zoo and the Bronx Borough President's office in our effort to collect toys for families of veterans and active duty members of the military in need this holiday season.

From November 5 through December 31, for every new, unwrapped toy you donate, receive a voucher for one free general admission ticket to the Bronx Zoo. (max. 4 vouchers per family)

Donations can be dropped off at the park entrance (no admission necessary) or inside the Bronx Zoo Store in specially designated bins. Vouchers can be collected at these drop off locations. Vouchers will be valid for redemption from 1/1/2019 – 6/1/2019.
