Adopt-A-Family: Our 13th Year Making Holidays Brighter

Kim Schweitzer

Once again, SaddleBrooke Ranch will participate in the Adopt-a-Family program sponsored by SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO). You can help make a child’s holiday special—this program provides gifts to families whose children are enrolled in our local school in Oracle, Mountain Vista.

We receive a wish list of gifts that the child would like for the holidays. The parent will be given a gift card to fulfill those wishes and is asked to account for their purchases.

SaddleBrooke Ranch residents can make a tax-deductible donation directly on the SBCO website at or with a check made payable to SaddleBrooke Community Outreach or SBCO, which will be used to purchase gift cards. SBCO is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization (Tax ID # 86-0843458), and all contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Donations are needed by Nov. 15. Kim Schweitzer and Betty Ryan are Adopt-a-Family co-chairs. If you prefer to pay by check, please leave it at either home address below:

Kim Schweitzer, 61162 E. Arbor Basin Rd., 516-428-8927, [email protected]

Betty Ryan, 31710 S. Summerwind Dr., 425-260-4418, [email protected]

If you have questions, please contact them by phone or email.

Thank you for your past generosity and happy holidays to all.
