FROM THE CITY OF JOPLIN

Macy's partners with the National Recreation and Park Association to raise funds for local parks nationwide, with every dollar matched by Macy's, up to $250,000

Parr Hill Park has been selected for "Heart Your Park," a program introduced 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 Joplin store at Northpark Mall can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Parr Hill Park. 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.

Parr Hill is one 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 (NRPA), 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, and ball fields, and everything in between.

"We are thrilled to partner with Macy's and NRPA for 'Heart Your Park' this spring," said Chris Cotten. "Through this program, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for the rebuilding of Parr Hill Park. This park is a great asset to the community, and we greatly appreciate Macy's support."

"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.
