Wilton-based pet food company Blue Buffalo has donated $10,000 to Trackside Teen Center. The teen center offers a drug- and alcohol-free environment for Wilton teens to call home.

“We are so grateful to the Bishop family, and Blue Buffalo for their tremendous support,” says Mark Ketley, Trackside’s executive director. “A donation such as this will go a long way towards our mission of providing a great facility to our teens in Wilton.”

Trackside is open daily after school for students to drop in to have a snack at the center’s café, play some video games, do homework, listen to music, or shoot some pool. The center also offers numerous programs after school, including cooking classes, study skills, knitting, musical theatre and acting classes. During school hours, the center hosts monthly meetings for numerous Wilton not-for-profit organizations like the Wilton Woman’s Club, Wilton Youth Council, Minks to Sinks, and many more.
