Zoo holds Piggy Bank Giveaway Day

Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in partnership with Fairfield County Bank will hold a Piggy Bank Giveaway Day on Friday, Sept. 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the zoo, 1875 Noble Avenue, Bridgeport.

While supplies last, kids ages 3 to 11 entering the zoo will receive a unique, pink piggy bank with the bank’s logo on one side and the zoo’s logo on the other side.

“Not only will this be one of our best giveaways of the summer season,” said Zoo Director Greg Dancho, “but it will teach children the benefits of saving, even nickels, dimes and pennies.” “We are pleased to partner with such a great institution in the county, Fairfield County Bank, a bank that has been giving back to the community for years,” he added.

“We are happy to support and give back to the kids of our area, and this is such a special and fun way to do it,” said Laura Silver, associate vice president — marketing manager of Fairfield County Bank.
