Submitted By City of Fremont
MacyÕs partners with the National Recreation and Park Association to raise funds for local parks nationwide, with every dollar matched by MacyÕs, up to $250,000
FremontÕs Lake Elizabeth/Central Park has been selected for ÒHeart Your Park,Ó a program introduced as part of MacyÕs ÒSecret GardenÓ campaign that aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country. From March 7 to March 31, customers at MacyÕs NewPark Mall can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefitting the City of FremontÕs Central Park/Lake Elizabeth. To further spread the love, MacyÕs will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.
Donations will go toward making improvements, such as maintaining trails, playgrounds, and ball fields, and everything in between. ÒWe are thrilled to partner with MacyÕs and the National Recreation and Park Association for ÔHeart Your ParkÕ this spring,Ó said Annabell Holland, City of Fremont Director of Community Services. ÒThrough this wonderful program and donations by MacyÕs customers, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for Lake Elizabeth/Central Park. This park is FremontÕs crown jewel, and we greatly appreciate MacyÕs support.Ó
