Macy’s “Secret Garden” campaign has pegged Strawbridge Lake Park for a program that aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country.

From March 7-31, customers at Macy’s Moorestown and Cherry Hill stores can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Strawbridge Lake Park as part of the “Heart Your Park” program.

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

Strawbridge Lake Park is one of more than 550 parks nationwide that will benefit from the program this spring, the Moorestown Department of Parks and Recreation announced on Monday.

In partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the national non-profit 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, and ball fields, and everything in between.

“We are thrilled to partner with Macy’s and NRPA for ‘Heart Your Park’ this spring,” Theresa Miller, Moorestown Director Of Parks and Recreation, said. “Through this wonderful program and donations by Macy’s customers, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for Strawbridge Lake Park. This park is a great asset to the community, and we greatly appreciate Macy’s support.”

As part of its “Secret Garden” campaign, Macy’s stores and macys.com will offer garden-inspired merchandise, special promotions and events.

Joe M Maybe we can use some of the money to hire Geese Chasers or find some other way to get rid of these foul fowl. Their droppings leave unwelcome memories all over the grass, punishing families on picnics or just walking along the lake, and they even mess up the roads making it slippery and dangerous for joggers. Town Council is unwilling to do anything any more, maybe Macy's can help.

I walk around the park with a portable drill and put holes in the eggs. That way the females sit on bad eggs and don't lay replacements.............
