Making a Difference in the Community Through La Palmera Cares

Throughout the years, the La Palmera Cares making-a-difference initiative has helped raise awareness and much needed funds for a variety of organizations and events on a local and regional level, through special events, fundraisers and awareness campaigns designed to assist charitable organizations and encourage community involvement. The program reflects the mission of La Palmera’s management company, Trademark Property Co., to be extraordinary stewards, enhance communities, and enrich lives.

La Palmera Cares — Making a Difference in the communities that we serve.

Community Partnerships

La Palmera stays involved with the Coastal Bend community, routinely working with groups and organizations to showcase local talent, including entertainers and artists, cultural exhibits and civic events open to local residents.

Guests can enjoy examples of these partnerships throughout the year including local groups taking advantage of our Community Booth to provide services and information, free live performances on The Stage at La Palmera Cafés, works of local artists showcased throughout the mall as part of a partnership with K Space Contemporary art gallery, the annual City Hall in the Mall event highlighting city services and programs, as well as Destination Education, an annual event spotlighting back-to-school and other educational opportunities in partnership with Coastal Compass Education and Career Resource Center.

Helping Our Coastal Bend Neighbors

Hurricane Harvey devastated many coastal communities in Texas and more than a year later, efforts continue not only to rebuild communities, but the lives — and livelihoods — of residents as well. Recovery efforts will be ongoing and La Palmera is committed to keeping the needs of its surrounding Coastal Bend neighbors top of mind and making a difference in the communities it serves.

Following are links to many of the communities hardest hit hardest with information on recovery efforts and the help still needed.
