SHWEDEL DENTAL'S MATCHING DONATION WILL EVENTUALLY ADD UP TO $1,000 FOR HERITAGE PARK!

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

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

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. 
Heritage Park supporters made their donations really count through an aggressive program at Shwedel Dental on Goddard Road. Dr. Steven Shwedel (in photo with Mayor Rick Sollars) collected donations over the past several weeks and doubled the total before dropping it off at Macy's. Macy's will will in turn double that, which means that Shwedel's program helped put $1,000 into Taylor's largest parkland.

For Spring 2014, Macy's partnered 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.
