Wear Your Support for Cincinnati Zoo

Posted April 3, 2020

You can help in small, medium, large and XL ways!

CINCINNATI, OH (April 3, 2020) Long-time Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden partner and supporter Cincy Shirts is stepping up to help the Zoo get through this difficult time. Proceeds from the sale of anew custom t-shirt that is available starting today will go to the Zoo’s Emergency Operating Fund, which was set up to help the Zoo continue to provide excellent care for nearly 2,000 animals while it is closed.

            “We are trying to use our reach and resources to help out in any way we can,” said Cincy Shirts co-founder Darin Overholser. “People have grown to expect that from us. We hope to see other local businesses pitch in and help out in whatever ways they can.”

            The Zoo’s last collaboration with Cincy Shirts yielded more than $200,000 for Zoos Victoria and was used to care for Australian wildlife hurt by raging wildfires.

            “We’re hoping that the community will want to wear their support for the Cincinnati Zoo same way they did for our friends down under,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard.  “We’re closed to the public, but our animal, horticulture and facilities teams are still here working hard to care for the animal and plant residents.   The Zoo is in urgent need of funding right now and t-shirt sale proceeds will help.  We appreciate Cincy Shirts for launching this effort for us.”

            The shirts are $20 for youth/toddler and $25 for unisex and are available at CincyShirts.com. They are navy blue.
