Valley Bank raises over 2,000 items for Riverside Zoo

Posted: Updated:

Animals at the Riverside Discovery Center will be able to celebrate the new year with all sorts of goodies thanks to a local business.

Valley Bank and Trust locations around Scottsbluff got together to raise food, toys and cologne for animals at the Zoo.  

Teams were formed and the competition was fierce as they raised over 2,000 items.   The winning team averaged over seventy items per person.   Event Organizer Michael Gillen is proud that everybody could come together and make this a success.

"It's how we collect items for the animals, make their lives better, give them new and novel smells, new foods they normally don't get in their diets and working at Valley Bank, I've also been involved with the zoo for a number of years.  I know that there's a need out here for those items," says Gillen. 

The Zoo is always looking for donations throughout the year and you can stop by anytime to do so.
