Valley Bank employees contribute over 2,000 items to RDC

Valley Bank employees Friday contributed over 2,200 enrichment items to the animals at the Riverside Discovery Center. The donation was made as part of the RDC's "Jingle Paws" program over the holiday that provides the animals food and other items to enrich their homes at the zoo.

Valley Bank Operations Manager Michael Gillen, who also works as a part-time zookeeper, says this is the 8th year the bank employees have made a large donation to the "JIngle Paws" program. The donations were loaded in two vans that were taken to the zoo Friday.

Gillen says the bank establishes employee teams that compete against each other, with the winning team at the Gering Main branch contributing more than 71 items per person. Gillen say the members of the winning team receive a behind the scene tour of the zoo.
