Cincinnati Zoo lights: Associates getting involved

Commitment to community is a vibrant part of our culture at Ameritas. That’s why our associates are encouraged to volunteer in so many different ways.

Cincinnati is home to hundreds of Ameritas associates who work at our Forest Park campus. It’s also home to the world-renowned Cincinnati Zoo. Every year, one of the highlights of the holiday season is a visit to the zoo to see it illuminated with lights. Nearly every inch of the zoo shimmers with brilliance.

Stringing all those lights throughout the zoo is a mammoth task. Work begins in the autumn and lasts up until show time, right before Thanksgiving.

That’s where our people got involved. One crisp fall morning while the trees were still ablaze with autumn leaves, a team of over 20 Ameritas associates trekked to the zoo and spent the morning with the zoo staff wrapping and draping lights.

Ameritas is proud to help make life more fulfilling in the communities we serve.
