Make a difference! Make a donation! Providing opportunity for kids to succeed

Shawne Cryderman

As the year comes to a close we ask you to consider making a difference in a child’s life. SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) provides clothing, educational opportunities and support of the Tri-Community Food Bank to help improve children’s lives in communities near us who experience extreme poverty.

Our Programs:

Kids’ Closet provides new clothing for children from Head Start through 8th grade in order to help them attend school each day.

Teen Closet offers eligible students a shopping trip to local retail stores to purchase appropriate classroom attire.

Education programs provide tutoring; underwrite enrichment programs; and offer scholarships to community colleges, universities and technical schools.

Financial support and donations from our annual Food Drive are given to Tri-Community Food Bank, making food available to the families in the communities of Mammoth, San Manuel and Oracle.

Holiday Food Baskets, Adopt a Family and Adopt a Child provide support to local families.

SBCO is 100% volunteer with no paid staff. Our service area extends from Catalina to Superior and across to the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation. That is 100 miles in three counties working with 17 schools in eight districts. For the 2016-17 school year SBCO has added the Miami School District.

Contributions can be mailed to SBCO, 63675 E. SaddleBrooke Blvd, Suite L, Tucson, AZ 85739 or hand delivered Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You can also use PayPal on our website:

Help us make a difference in their lives by making a donation to SBCO. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, eligible for an Arizona Tax Credit because of our programs for the working poor. That means you can also use this contribution as a tax deduction on your federal return. We do suggest you consult your accountant for further information.
