Keeping it cool at TCWR
March 27, 2018
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is gearing up for 2018’s NWA Gives day! You’re invited to our online day of giving Thursday, April 5th from 8am-8pm CST for a day dedicated to the nonprofits that call Northwest Arkansas home. You don’t have to be a resident of NWA to participate, just show some love to NWA nonprofits like Turpentine Creek!
This year, Turpentine Creek’s goal is to raise $7,500 for a new 10 x 12 ft freezer to store meat for the animals. As warmer temperatures approach, we are going to need more cold storage space to keep our animals meals. Our bears and big cats have big appetites! We feed out between 800-1,200 lbs of raw meat daily and having the extra freezer space will allow us to more efficiently store, thaw, and feed out food for our four-legged residents.
No amount is too great or too small to give, join us Thursday, April 5th for a day of giving, fun online activities, and fundraising. Please check your email, join us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Youtube for fun activities throughout the day, and donate to help us, help them. Donations will be accepted online and over the phone the day of the online fundraising event, checks can also be sent with “NWA Gives Day” in the memo line.
