For the fourth year in a row, the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company — including Disney|ABC Television Group and ESPN — to help fund local park improvement projects across the country through the national “Meet Me at the Park” Earth Month campaign. The city that receives the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park.
Local parks make the City of Coldwater a better place to live, work, and play. Parks are essential to our City’s health and prosperity as they provide safe places to be active, enjoy nature, and bring the people in our community together. That’s why from April 1 to April 30, residents will have the opportunity to nominate their favorite local park to receive $20,000 in grant funding to make improvements.
Residents can nominate the City of Coldwater to receive the $20,000 grant by visiting NRPA.org/Disney. At the end of April, the city with the most nominations will receive the grant funding, and everyone who nominates a city will be entered into a drawing for a GoPro Prize Pack.
“At NRPA we believe everyone deserves a great park. That’s why we’re proud to collaborate with The Walt Disney Company on this campaign,” said Lori Robertson, NRPA director of conservation. “Everyone is encouraged to join us in giving back to the places that shape so much of our lives by participating in this year’s campaign. A nomination for your favorite park is all it takes.”
During April, a public service announcement (PSA) supporting the “Meet Me at the Park” campaign will be shared with audiences across Disney, including ESPN, ABC Television Network, ABC-owned and affiliate stations, Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, the ABC app and other digital platforms. The PSA will also be available to view on the voting site at www.NRPA.org/DisneyMeetMeAtThePark. Additionally, Radio Disney will support the campaign with an on-air radio spot.
This April, Coldwater can show what parks mean to our community by nominating our great city! For more information and to nominate the City of Coldwater, visit www.NRPA.org/DisneyMeetMeAtThePark.
