The HUB in Langley received a $500 donation from Coldwell Banker Tara Properties Community Fund on Oct. 24.

Frankie Petitclerc, program manager of The HUB, received the donation from Gail Pierce of Coldwell Banker. The company has supported The HUB for the past several years.

The donation will help The HUB continue providing an after-school drop-in center for teens on South Whidbey. The program has been running for 20 years and was reinvented as a nonprofit when their grant funding ran out. Now the organization relies exclusively on donations and community support to provide a safe place for teens to gather after school for food, music, supervision and activities. It’s open five days a week since school started this fall.
