By on March 31, 2018 in WNDB News

Ormond Beach, FL – Residents of the City of Ormond Beach will soon have the opportunity to nominate the city to receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park as part of the “Meet Me at the Park” Earth Month campaign.

Beginning on April 1 through April 30, Ormond Beach residents can nominate the city by visiting NRPA.org/Disney and by taking a selfie in their favorite park and using the hashtags #MeetMeAtThePark, #Parkies, and #CelebrateEarth. This is the fourth year in a row that the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and The Walt Disney Company have come together to help fund local park improvement projects across the nation.

The city that receives the most nomination at the end of the nomination period will receive the grant. Those who nominate a city will be entered to win a GoPro Prize Pack.

“Ormond Beach is known for its extraordinary quality of life where parks are a vital component of the health and happiness of our citizens and have always been a top priority,” said Ormond Beach Mayor Bill Partington.

“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 the NRPA director of conservation, Lori Robertson.  “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.”

Audiences of Disney’s Radio Disney, ESPN, ABC Television Network, ABC-owned and affiliate stations, Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, the ABC app and other digital platforms will see a public service announcement (PSA) supporting the Meet Me at the Park campaign during the month of April. The PSA will also be available to watch at  www.NRPA.org/DisneyMeetMeAtThePark.
