Park People Facilitated Donations 2006-10

The Park People organization is known mainly for its advocacy of our wonderful park system and programs such as the Weed-Out and Friends Group Initiative, but did you know that we also actively pursue charitable donations that benefit our parks?  Over the last four years we have facilitated over 1.3 million dollars in donations for park enhancement projects, park equipment purchases, recreational supplies and park employee enrichment.
