United Way of Hernando County’s 7th Born Learning Trail Installed at Anderson Snow Park
Spring Hill, FL – (June 2, 2021) – Every year since 2009, dedicated Keller Williams Realty associates participate in their company-wide RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize, and Donate. On that day, KW realtors and employees connect with their community’s needs and spend the day volunteering for various projects as an annual act of service.
"We chose to partner with United Way of Hernando County for our Keller Williams RED Day project because we love what they do for the community,” stated Heather Mallamo, Agent Services Coordinator for Keller Williams Elite Realty. “We live by a similar motto of #GiveWhereYouLive! So, United Way’s 7th Born Learning Trail installation at Anderson Snow Park was the perfect volunteer project for us.”
On the morning of Thursday, May 13th, twenty-two enthusiastic volunteers gathered at Anderson Snow Park, prepared to work hard to beautify the newly renovated playground with 10 interactive Born Learning Trail signs for young children and their caregivers. Volunteers collectively donated 105 hours of their time to install each trail sign and create a fun and unique activity such as a hopscotch trail, over 200 colorful shapes painted on the ground, and a special alphabet scavenger hunt.
The Born Learning initiative focuses on early education by encouraging parents and caregivers to take an active role in their child’s learning. The 10 Trail signs installed at Hernando County Parks help parental engagement by offering tips like talk, listen, sing, jump, clap, and skip. "We hope the impact of the Born Learning Trail will bring families closer together and inspire children to use their creativity while learning and growing their young minds,” said Heather.
United Way has a goal of installing a Trail in every park in Hernando County, and we need you to help us reach our goal!
