And, as a bonus, shoppers can take 10% off on our entire store selection for this one day only."
There will also be the opportunity to make a direct donation at the park store register in order to raise $5,000 for a $5,000 HPPA match. With the match, the park partners will receive a gift of $10,000 for the ten years that have passed since 2011. "Come #ShopYourParks and help make that happen!" says the HPPA statement.
