N2R's New Home:

As of January 30, 2001 Westmont Construction generously donated office space to N2R. Our new office address is 4731 El Camino Avenue in Carmichael. We are located at the corner of Mission and El Camino.

We met Sue and Bernie Sequeira last March when we began the massive renovation effort at the Sacramento Police Athletic League. Sue and Bernie worked with us lovingly and diligently since last March to renovate the downstairs area in the Sacramento Police Athletic League (PALs). Throughout that process, Sue and Bernie became not only trusted colleagues but dear friends. They arranged help for us to move out of PALS in January. Without them, the move would not have been possible, as the move was under very difficult circumstances. Their high standards, incredible generosity and strong ethics make them stand high above the rest of the crowd. We are so fortunate to have N2R located in their office.

The following organizations and individuals rallied together and contributed over $100,000.00 in resources and cash to make the center a positive and upbeat place for the kids to know people really care and want to make their lives a little more promising.

  • Westmont Construction
    Donated significant amounts of time and money in labor and materials to N2R for PALs. Westmont helped N2R in arranging for Home Depot and Kelly Moore to donate necessary materials. Principal owners Sue and Bernie Sequeira couldn't have done more to make the renovation a total success. Sue and their crew worked tireless hours to turn a multi-year project into six months. Westmont Construction 's motto should be "we do the best and most honest work, give you trustworthy advice, have high standards, strong ethics, we demonstrate excellent follow-through and we work enthusiastically." Westmont Construction can be reached at: 800-342-3922 or 916-482-3922.

  • Home Depot
    Donated two heaping full shopping carts worth of materials to N2R for PALs.

  • Bank of America & Fair Oaks Blvd. Nursery
    Jointly donated outside shrubbery, potting soil and cash to beautify the outside.

  • Councilwoman Lauren Hammond
    Without her generosity, the renovation project wouldn't have taken place. Councilwoman Hammond donated $15,000.00 towards the project.

  • e. Republic
    Arranged for the STL LTd. donation of 3500 square feet of blue carpet.

  • Lynette Kleinfeld Interiors
    Donated her time in assisting N2R picking colors and arranged for world renowned artist Joanne Lindemann to paint the hallways.

  • Joanne Lindemann
    Donated her time to painting and stenciling the hallways and recreation room.

  • Robert Simas Floor Coverings
    Discounted the labor for taking out the old carpet and installing the new one. Donated all the tile for the hallway.
