ROCHESTER, Minn. — More than 550 parks across the country are going to benefit from donations including one here in our area.
Macy’s department store is holding the “Heart Your Park” fundraiser that raises thousands of dollars for these parks. Customers can donate a dollar or more at the register and Macy’s will match it up to $250,000.
Rochester’s Soldiers Field Park is one of the locations.
“Any time we get the opportunity to do something that benefits our local community I think our associates buy into it and our customers really support it by donating their dollars,” said Macy’s Store Manager Eric Oforio-Atta.
The campaign kicked off Friday and will run through the end of the month at the Macy’s inside the Apache Mall.
