The Watermark at Trinity is involved with a wonderful program called Watermark for Kids. Watermark for Kids is a non-profit organization that sponsors underserved children ages 6-22. Sponsorships come in various forms based on the application provided. Each applicant is encouraged to apply with a project that expresses their creativity, compassion, and leadership. Nominees are selected based on the organization’s commitment of enabling children to thrive and providing opportunities to them that they might not be given otherwise.
The Watermark at Trinity was approached by Kara Pugliese, a Girl Scout from the West Central Florida division. Kara explained that she was trying to attain the Girl Scout Silver Award and on her path to achieve that she had to complete a “Take Action” Project. Kara said that she had chosen to take the “Breathe” journey and kept an Air Log. She created a program called “Connecting with Nature” and wanted to bring nature to seniors that might not be able to experience it anymore. The Community Life Director at the community was so touched by Kara’s gesture, she nominated her as a Watermark for Kid recipient. Kara was awarded enough money to design and plant a garden in the memory care section of the assisted living community. Kara then held a Watermark University class to explain her journey as well as to discuss the flowers she picked and the message behind her dedication garden. Thank you so much to Kara and her mom Laura, for all of their support and involvement in giving back to our community and serving our residents.
