SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The San Francisco Zoo is offering free admission to UPS employees and their families for the rest of June.
This thoughtful gesture comes in the wake of a shooting rampage at a San Francisco UPS facility, in which the gunman killed himself after killing three others.
“Knowing the healing power of our animals and park, I thus extend free admission to UPS employees and their families during the month of June,” zoo president Tanya Peterson said in a statement.
This incident strikes “close to home” for the zoo, “especially since especially since UPS has been a loyal transporter of SF Zoo packages for many years,” Peterson said.
Peterson encourages the public to spread the word, and “extend SFZS’ embrace of support and community.”
