Macy's announced Thursday that Columbia Park in Kennewick has been chosen for the retail company's "Heart Your Park" program.
Between March 7 and March 31, customers at the Kennewick Macy's can donate $1 or more to Columbia Park at the registers.
Macy's will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000.
Maxine Whattam, Kennewick's community services manager, said in a statement, "Through this wonderful program and donations by Macy's customers, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for Columbia Park. This park is a great asset to the community, and we greatly appreciate Macy's support."
Never miss a local story.
Kennewick, which leases the 356-acre park from the Army Corps of Engineers, pays about $600,000 a year to maintain it including upkeep on buildings, fencing, gazebos and playground equipment, cleaning bathrooms, mowing, along with providing water and utilities.
The city receives about $100,000 a year in park fees for events and rentals.
Columbia Park is one of more than 550 parks nationwide that will benefit from Macy's "Heart Your Park" this spring. The program is offered in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association.
Donations to the Walla Walla Macy's store will go to the Whitman Mission National Historic Site as part of the campaign.
The Whitman Mission is a national historic site commemorating the 1847 Whitman Massacre.
