Tift Park looks to community support for $20,000 grant
The Albany community can help support a local park that was destroyed by January's storms right from their workplace or home.
The National Recreation and Park Association's "Meet Me at the Park" campaign will give a $20,000 grant to 15 city park projects across the country.
According to Friends at Tift Park Chairman Stephen Brimberry, Tift Park is the perfect candidate for the grant.
"It's not every day that you have a chance to give back to your community in such a easy way," Brimberry said. "You can sit at your house or your office and give back by just voting Albany, Georgia a $20,000 grant. That's your way to give back."
If chosen, the money will be used to help restore the park's natural beauty and build shelters for farmers to have a marketplace year round.
The community can vote up to 16 times a day by either going to the website or texting in their vote.
People can cast votes until the end of April, and the winners will be announced on May 5.
