SaddleBrooke Community Outreach will host an event that allows you to meet members and officers of this local 501c3 organization that devotes its services to needy children in neighboring communities. We are 100 percent volunteer with no paid staff.
The event will take place Saturday, Nov. 16 from noon to 3 p.m. at the HOA1 Activity Center, 64518 E. Galveston Lane. There will be representatives from Kids’ Closet, Teen Closet, Education, our food programs, and Adopt a Family. Our new brochure will be available for you to take home, and questions can be answered about our operations and finances. Light refreshments will be provided.
Our mission is to make a positive impact on the lives of needy schoolchildren in neighboring communities by improving self-esteem, school attendance and scholastic achievement. Our service area begins in Catalina and extends through Pinal County to Superior in the north and the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in the east. That is a 100 mile corridor; it includes 20 schools, eight districts and three counties. We touch the lives of over 4,000 youngsters with our combination of programs.
If you like kids, and want to make a difference in their lives, take some time on Saturday, Nov. 16 and visit us at the activity center. This opportunity is open to anyone interested in learning more about community outreach, and ways to participate.
At that meeting we welcome nonperishable food items suitable for our Thanksgiving food baskets that are distributed in the Tri Community area of Oracle, San Manuel and Mammoth. Items like canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, and stuffing mixes will help us prepare more than 30 baskets.
Willie Reich, director of membership would appreciate an RSVP by Nov. 5 in order to have sufficient refreshments for everyone. She can be reached at 825-0117, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come to meet us! It is all about the kids…
