State Parks: Whole Earth Helps State Parks

This is Passport to Texas

Heat, drought, and wildfires kept visitors from state parks last year, which severely reduced revenue. Citizens wanting to help have donated more than a million dollars to support parks. And businesses, including Whole Earth Provision Company, are helping, too. Bryan Frazier has details.

62—They approached us and said they would like to help the cause of state parks. They’re the host sponsor for the Banff Film Festival every year here in Austin, and all of the net proceeds will benefit state parks. The second thing they’ve offered to do is for the entire month of April to make state parks a beneficiary of donations at their counters—when people check out with their merchandise, they ask if they’d like to make a donation to state parks. And for every $20 that’s donated, Whole Earth Provision Company will then give customers a free $5 gift card that can be used on site at Texas State parks. And it’s companies like that, that are making a difference. So really, collectively, people across Texas are saying they’re concerned about state parks and they want to help. And now what we’ve seen is businesses stepping up in a very valued partnership allowing us to do things that we otherwise couldn’t do.

Thanks, Bryan.
