The New Zoo 2013 Campaign

arvato Polska, as part of the International World Cleaning Day, co-organized the Poznan ZOO cleaning campaign. On Saturday September 21, a group of 24 volunteers from arvato, together with their companions and representatives of other companies (altogether there were over 150 people), gathered to restore the most neglected places in New ZOO. The participants, regardless of their interests and the fact that it was a day off, swiftly took to the tasks assigned to them beforehand. Including:

- painting benches,

- painting the fence next to the flamingos,

- painting the fence at the runway for rhinos,

- planting plants and trees,

- cleaning the children's garden.

It is worth noting that all the tools, paints and plants, were brought by volunteers. The total time spent by the participants amounted to about 150 man-hours. It is no wonder that after such an effort each one deserved a decent, warm meal. arvato (along with co-organizers) took care that the volunteers were not hungry and provided them a comprehensive catering. They grill a sausage or roast it at the bonfire, have a pie or soup and drink beverages. Each participant received a voucher valued PLN 30 to freely spend on food and drinks.

After refreshment, volunteers could participate in a field game. The game combined the skills of efficient field orientation and puzzle solving. There was a lot of fun! At the end of the game all participants received a diploma, and the best team was awarded a symbolic cup.

After an eventful day, filled with the feeling of fulfillment and good deeds, some volunteers went home, while others spent the rest of the sunny day enjoying happier animals in the Poznań New ZOO.
