On Monday, April 13, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach held its annual Appreciation Program honoring special groups and volunteers who have made a difference in the lives of the neighboring needy children we service through our various programs.
This year SBCO has honored a team at the Walmart Neighborhood Market at Magee and Oracle in Oro Valley for their support of our Holiday Food Basket program. Traditionally SBCO has assembled up to 35 Thanksgiving food baskets for families in the Oracle area who have been identified as in need. The Walmart team offered to provide us with turkeys and other perishable food items at a reasonable price and even stored the products until Joan and Rich Robertses could pick them up just before Thanksgiving.
This fall activity has been chaired by the Roberts, assisted by several volunteers and welcomed in our neighboring community. Rebekah Masuch, meat manager at Walmart, and Elvia Colores, the Walmart human resources representative, were present to receive the plaque honoring their store and employees for outstanding support of our program.
Thank you to Walmart for making a difference in the lives of our neighbors. Did Rebekah say she could get us 50 turkeys next year?
