Disney Donates $1.5 Million to the National Recreation and Park Association

The Walt Disney Company recently donated $1.5 million to the National Recreation and Park Association to provide funding for the Meet Me at the Park program. The NRPA’s Meet Me at the Park program promotes family fun in parks nationwide. Disney has donated to this organization for four consecutive years “to fund local park improvement projects in 16 U.S. cities” in celebration of Earth Month. Disney’s efforts with the NRPA have also pushed recreational programs “in 50 states on a healthy living program that seeks to increase the amount of time children and families spend at parks by increasing access to play spaces.”

Director of conservation Lori Robertson said, “At National Recreation and Park Association we believe everyone deserves a great park. That’s why we’re proud to collaborate with The Walt Disney Company on this campaign.”

Between April 1–30, 2018 anyone is welcome to vote online (HERE) for the park projects looking for funding. $20,000 will be granted to each city’s project with the most votes.
