TeamConnor is Honored to be Named as a Charity Recipient of NorthPark 50: Fifty Years of Giving.
DALLAS — North Texans have helped make NorthPark Center one of the most well-known malls in the United States. To celebrate that relationship and its 50 year anniversary, the mall’s ownership is giving back.
People have been shopping until they drop at NorthPark Center since 1965. NorthPark is unique among malls because it not only features high-end shopping, but sculptures and other works of art.
While many malls across the country are struggling to stay afloat, last year the mall earned more than $1.2 billion dollars in sales, making it one of the most profitable shopping centers in the United States. During that time the mall has partnered with many charitable organizations allowing them to use the mall to raise money and set up educational booths.
In celebration of 50 years, NorthPark Center will be giving donations to 50 North Texas charities over the next 50 days. The initiative was announced Wednesday morning by mall owner and philanthropist, Nancy Nasher, on the mall’s lower level between anchor stores Macy’s and Nordstrom.
In addition, next month the annual North Texas Day of Giving, sponsored by the Communities Foundation of Texas, will be based at the mall on Sept. 17.
The exact amounts each of the 50 organization will get was not revealed, only that it will be in line with their needs.
