Two more organizations have stepped up in support of the High Park Zoo.

During a special ceremony at the zoo, The Grenadier Group presented a $5,000 cheque while CUPE Local 79 presented a $7,000 cheque to Parkdale-High Park Councillor Sarah Doucette on behalf of the zoo. The funds will be matched by the Honey Family Foundation up to $50,000. The influx in funds brings the zoo’s grand total to date to $35,000.

“It’s fantastic, a great boost,b Doucette told The Villager on Monday, May 27. bWithout the Honey Family Foundation, the zoo wouldn’t be here.”

The local councillor credited the foundation for inspiring a number of groups and individuals to make a donation. Donations made to the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation before June 15 will be doubled by the Honey Family Foundation.
