In The Community

Bootsy Collins is committed to giving back to the communities in which we work, live, and play. He continues to partner with non-profits and education foundations to make a difference in the lives of our local communities. “If we can be successful impacting the lives of others, we will end up with a citizenship that is connected, engaged and more likely to be successful. If we enable all citizens and especially those in disadvantaged situations to be involved in their communities we will be creating a rising tide to lift the community out of poverty and will have an educated and dedicated workforce in our communities”
