BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook Park District’s Bradford Park has been selected for Heart Your Park, a program introduced as part of Macy’s program to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country.

Through March 31, customers at Macy’s Bolingbrook can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Bradford Park.

Macy’s also will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.

Bradford Park 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 nonprofit 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, ball fields and everything in between, according to a release.
