Jungle Bells, Jungle Bells, Jungle All The Way

By Fox 40 Staff.
Animal Adventure held their 4th annual Jungle Bells today.

Kids from all over Broome County came out to the animal-themed holiday celebration that featured animal crafts, a meet and greet with some members of the B-Mets, and the first public appearance of Winston, a baby African Warthog.

Although the event was free, donations were accepted for off season animal care. The Blue Ox energy group also collected canned goods for local food pantries.

"Blue Ox Energy actually sponsors our giraffe exhibit, and Blue Ox was on site today collecting nonperishable food items, and for every food item that was donated, not only does that go to a local pantry, but also one dollar goes towards the eating budget of our giraffe barn," said owner of Animal Adventures, Jordan Patch,

Members from the Blue Ox Energy Services Team, the local Boy Scouts, Allstar Elite Cheer, and the Animal Adventure staff all volunteered in order to make the free event possible for the community.
