LAST WEEKEND TO MAKE HERITAGE PARK DONATIONS THROUGH MACY'S PROGRAM

REMEMBER: THIS IS YOUR LAST WEEKEND TO DOUBLE YOUR DOLLARS FOR HERITAGE PARK!

The City of Taylor has been a partner in Macy's "Love Your Park" program during March.

Under the program, people can donate $1 or more to support Taylor's Heritage Park, and Macy's will match the donations, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000. The program runs until March 31. In fact, if you want to "double the double" when it comes to donations, drop off your donation at Shwedel Dental on Goddard Road. Shwedel is collecting donations and will double the total before it drops it off at Macy's -- which will double that total!

For Spring 2014, Macy's is partnering with the National Recreation and Park Association to help raise awareness and funds for local parks across the country. More than 650 local parks will benefit from the program nationwide.

More than 100,000 community parks dot the United States. The National Recreation and Parks Association is the national non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of community parks, recreation and conservation. Community parks contribute to quality of life, providing public places to enjoy nature, be active and bring together families and neighborhoods. The parks also provide connections to the natural world.

To contribute directly, just visit Macy's at 23000 Eureka in Taylor. This is the final weekend of the month. The promotion runs through Monday, March 31.
