The Belfast Co-op’s Common Cents group for December is the Friends of Belfast Parks! Every shopper may ’round-up’ their purchases at the Co-op to donate to our monthly recipient.
The Friends of Belfast Parks is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization working to actively support the preservation & continued development of Belfast’s parks and greenways for the benefit of all our citizens
- Promote community use, enjoyment, and respect for our local parks; increase public awareness about the inherent values of parks and green space;
- assist in preserving and improving local park facilities;
- involve youth in local park improvement projects;
- support the efforts of the Belfast Parks & Recreation Department.
BELFAST’S PARKS include City Park, Belfast Common, Walsh Field Recreation Area (including the Belfast Dog Park), Steamboat Landing, Kirby Lake (The Muck), Wales Park, Four-Seasons Recreation Area (former ski slope), and Eleanor Crawford Park.
100% of all donations received through Common Cents go on to each month’s group.
