Macy’s taps Fairfield park for fundraising campaign

By From page A5 | March 14, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Allan Witt 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.

City officials announced the designation Thursday.

Customers at Macy’s in Fairfield can donate $1 or more at the register through March 31, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Allan Witt Park. Macy’s will match the donations dollar for dollar in support of Allan Witt Park, which includes the Sports and Aquatics Complex.

Allan Witt is one of more than 550 parks nationwide that will benefit from the program, according to a press release from the city.

The campaign is a partnership between Macy’s and the National Recreation and Park Association, a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to the advancement of community parks, recreation and conservation, according to the city’s announcement.

Donations will go toward making improvements, such as maintaining trails, playgrounds and ball fields, “and everything in between,” the city announced.
