Arbor Hills Nature Preserve and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve have been selected for “Heart Your Park,” a programintroduced as part of Macy’s “Secret Garden” campaign that aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country. From March 7 to March 31, customers at Macy’s Willow Bend and Macy’s Collin Creek can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Arbor Hills Nature Preserve and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve. To further spread the love, Macy’s will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.

 

“We are thrilled to partner with Macy’s and NRPA for ‘Heart Your Park’ this spring,” Plano Parks and Recreation Director Amy Fortenberry said. “Through this wonderful program and donations by Macy’s customers, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for Arbor Hills Nature Preserve and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve. These parks are a great asset to the community, and we greatly appreciate Macy’s support.”

 

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve are two of more than 550 parks nationwide that will benefit from Macy’s “Heart Your Park” this spring. In partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association, the national non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of community parks, recreation and conservation, Macy’s stores across the country have each selected a local park or green space in their community to support through the program. Donations will go toward making improvements, such as maintaining trails, playgrounds, ball fields and everything in between.

 

“Heart Your Park” is part of Macy’s “Secret Garden” spring campaign that will come to life at Macy’s stores and on macys.com with an infusion of garden-inspired merchandise, special promotions and events. For more information on “Secret Garden,” visit macys.com/secretgarden
