On Tuesday, August 7, 2012 over 14 women and children from our shelters had a day at the Brookfield Zoo thanks to Jim M’Lady owner of M’Lady Nissan located at:5656 Northwest Highway in Crystal Lake. For many of our families, a day at the zoo is considered a luxury that they would normally never be able to afford. Vice President of Programs Emily Landis states, “The women and children had a wonderful time exploring the zoo, learning about different ecosystems and animals, and enjoying special family time. Being able to eat lunch together at the zoo was also a special event. Families created lifelong memories yesterday at the Broofield Zoo thanks to Jim M’Lady”.
