Donate to SBCO and Make a Difference!


Nancy McCluskey-Moore

For more than 25 years, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) has been providing young people in local communities with opportunities to succeed through programs that provide food, clothing, enrichment grants, and scholarships. We serve youngsters living in the “Copper Corridor”—mining towns stretching more than 100 miles from Catalina to Globe.

Programs implemented by our all-volunteer organization include:

Food—Our Annual Food Drive collects funds (and donated food) for the Tri-Community Food Bank and we deliver holiday food baskets to families in Oracle, San Manuel, and Mammoth.

Kids’ Closet—Twice a year, children from pre-K to 8th grade receive new shoes, clothing, and toiletries, plus a backpack filled with grade-appropriate school supplies.

Teen Closet—Twice a year, students from 9th through 12th grade receive a $250 shopping budget for clothing and school supplies. Graduating seniors receive an additional shopping trip to prepare for college or work.

Education Enrichment—Grants are given to schools and community organizations to supplement the school curriculum with instructional experiences in science, math, and the arts, as well as summer school, books, and recreational opportunities.

Scholarships—We grant two- and four-year college scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Students in a two-year program receive $1,800 per year and those in a four-year program receive $3,600. This year alone we granted 53 scholarships!

Adopt-a-Family and Adopt-a-Child—Annually these programs collect funds from SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch residents that volunteers then use to purchase, wrap, and deliver gifts (or gift cards) to families in Oracle, San Manuel, and the parents/guardians of children attending elementary schools in Oracle, San Manuel, Kearny, Winkelman, San Carlos, and Apache Tribal Social Services.
