How to “Heart Your Parks” When you Shop

Three parks in Montgomery Parks system, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, have 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.

Through March 31, customers can support Cabin John Regional Park, Flower Hill Local Park and Wheaton Regional Park by donating $1 or more at the register of the Macy’s store located in each area. Stores and corresponding parks are listed in the news release. One-hundred percent of the donations will benefit the parks, and Macy’s will match the total customer donations across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.

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.
