Theresa Callahan, Program Coordinator for the Intermountain Teen Center, announced that the center will be doing a Tamale Fundraiser. Money will go to help year-round programs and trips for Intermountain teens.
Starting on December 1, people can order either chicken or pork tamales. The cost is $15 a dozen. Orders must be placed by December 14th.
The Intermountain Teen Center is a youth outreach program of the Hill Country Health and Wellness Center. The afterschool drop-in program works in two locations. In Round Mountain, there is a center behind Hill Country Clinic that is open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3 p.m. to 6.p.m. In Burney, the center is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6.pm at the Circle of Friends office on the corner of Main and Tamarack.
Teens from teen center will be taking orders, or people can go to either of the above locations during teen center hours to place an order.
People in Round Mountain will be able to pick up their tamales at the teen center in Round Mountain on December 19th. People in Burney will be able to pick up their tamales at the center in Burney on December 20th.
The teen center serves teens ages 13- 17. The center has held a number of classes on cooking and art. They also have a lot of fun activities, including contests, video games, air hockey, a pool table, board games, art, and music. There are quiet areas to do homework and computers for the young people to use.
All profits from the Intermountain Teen Center Fundraisers go directly back to the program to benefit the teens. During the summer of 2016, teens were able to go on a trip to Santa Cruz with the money they raised throughout the 2015/2016 school year, as well as go on many outings to places such as Ice Skating in Mt. Shasta, Turtle Bay, Camping in Lassen Park, Skating in Redding.
