Volunteers and candy donations needed

The Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo is looking for volunteers and candy donations for the 21st Annual Boo at the Zoo. The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 31, from 3-7:30 p.m.

All volunteers will need to attend an orientation that will be held one week prior to the event. If you are interested, please contact Michelle Hagan at

If you are unable to donate time, we encourage you to donate bags of individually wrapped, unopened candy, labeled with your name, department and phone number. By doing this, it provides us the opportunity to express a frightful and delightful appreciation to you at our event.

When choosing candy, please note that the Palm Oil Shopping Guide has information on purchasing candy from companies that utilize sustainable palm oil in order to help the future of orangutans.

Finally, monetary donations are always welcome. All donations can be sent through campus mail, hand delivered to our office, or we can pick up your donation by calling 352-395-5633.

Please note, activities that are college-related but are not directly related to a non-exempt employee’s primary job duties are considered voluntary and therefore are not compensable when participation is at the sole discretion of the non-exempt employee and the activity occurs outside of the employee’s normal work hours.
