Teens from Sycamore Canyon Academy volunteer their time at Kids Closet.

Sycamore Canyon Academy is the newest school to receive assistance from SaddleBrooke Community Outreach’s program Kids’ Closet. Located in Oracle, this school has 12 male teens between ages 12-18 who have been underperforming in their personal and academic life. The curriculum includes academic education, recreational activities, cultural events, and community service projects. The boys can receive clothing from the closet as needed.

Their community service was recently offered to Kids’ Closet. There has been an erosion problem near the front entrance parking lot at the closet. Sycamore Canyon Academy offered the services of the boys to alleviate the problem. KC volunteer Patrick Polenchek went to work to get 20 tons of rip rap stone delivered to the Mammoth site. The Mammoth Volunteer Fire Department sprayed the area with several gallons of water to loosen the soil.

The teens had to dig and level the area, and then move the rocks by hand to the erosion area. After completing their task the students were treated to pizza at Kids’ Closet. The SBCO volunteers were impressed with the excellent behavior, hard work, politeness and respect exhibited by all of the students involved in the project.

SBCO applauds the efforts of Sycamore Canyon Academy in seeing that all the participants learn to care about their community and how volunteering helps to build leadership and responsibility in each student. Want to make a difference in a child’s life? Volunteer your time with us!
