A brand new Zanesville organization is giving back.

The Zanesville Opportunity Organization, also known as The Z.O.O. is hosting Tailgate to Fill the Plate Saturday October 13th at Prophet’s Park to benefit Christ’s Table.

"We really respect what they do in the community. They help a lot of people they feed hundreds of people every single day and they’re right in tune with us and they help a lot of people and we really wanted to be involved with them somehow," The Z.O.O. Co-Founder, Missy Durant. 

Tailgate activities start at 10 a.m. with a flea market and last the entire day leading up to the OSU football game at 8 p.m. Attendees will have a chance to win a prize as soon they walk through the door.

"It only costs $1 to get in or you can bring a canned food item for Christ’s Table. You can actually bring up to five cans per person and you’ll get a door prize ticket for every canned item you bring in or every dollar," said Durant.

Volunteers are still needed for tomorrow’s event, to learn more visit The Zoo’s facebook page, www.facebook.com/thezanesvillezoo
