"Bear Hugs" Campaign Designed to Support The Alaska Zoo's Mission and Educational Opportunities the Zoo Provides for Alaska's Youth via Animal Adoptions, While Helping Children Spending the Holiday at the Children's Hospital at Providence in Anchorage

(PRWEB) February 12, 2018

Avitus Group and the Alaska Zoo are sharing the love this Valentine's Day with children who are spending the month of February at the Children's Hospital at Providence in Anchorage. The two organizations are partnering to deliver multiple black bear and brown bear animal adoptions paired with stuffed polar bears from the zoo's gift shop to children in the hospital. Children will also receive a coupon for a behind the scenes tour of the zoo and 2 admit one passes. The organizations are inviting the public to become involved. For each Alaska Zoo animal adoption through February 14th, Avitus Group will match the donation by providing a stuffed polar bear for a child spending the holiday in the hospital.

Animal adoption fees are tax deductible and all funds go directly to animal care. For more information, or to adopt an animal, the organizations encourage participants to visit the Alaska Zoo's website.

"We love supporting the mission of the Alaska Zoo and the educational opportunities the zoo provides for our youth in Alaska. Offering that support while making a child smile during a tough time in their life is something we're committed to doing each year as we partner with the zoo and with the community," says Avitus Group Public Relations Manager Dianne Parker.

"The Alaska Zoo is grateful for the support of community-minded organizations like Avitus Group for making such a strong effort to give back to the community. The Zoo's mission could not be carried out without the support of our Alaska community and groups like Avitus. It is our great pleasure to partner with them in this fun, but important venture in helping the children feel cared for and comforted in their time of need," says Alaska Zoo Executive Director Pat Lampi.
