The Collings Teen Center partners directly with the Washington Unified School District to personally invite middle schoolers who are economically challenged. The student brings his/her entire family to celebrate the community festivities together. Broderick Roadhouse once again provided a special turkey/ham holiday dinner for the occasion. Other sponsors include Raley’s, the West Sacramento Police Department, the River Cats, Ramco, Exclusive Realty, the Centennial Rotary, WalMart, Grocery Outlet, and Nugget.
The Collings Teen Center is a non-profit organization committed to investing in the lives of at-risk young people in the West Sacramento community on a daily basis. Local youth are involved in after-school programs, pairing students with adult mentors, free meals each afternoon, camps and activities, and most importantly – a safe environment.
