SaddleBrooke Community Outreach will hold its annual community food drive to benefit Tri Community Food Bank on Saturday, March 14. Last year the communities of SaddleBrooke and the Ranch collected over 19,000 pounds of nonperishable food and $12,000 in cash to help the people in the Mammoth, San Manuel, Oracle area known as the Tri Communities.
How does this work? Volunteers serve as captains for each unit; place a flyer in your tube prior to the event and on the morning of March 14 your food will be picked up at the end of your driveway by one of those volunteers. This year the donations will be sorted and repacked at SaddleBrooke Country Club (HOA 1). The pickup will begin at 8:00 a.m.; the entire amount of food received is ready to go to Mammoth by late morning. If you would like to volunteer to help with this project contact Rich and Joan Roberts at 825-7577.
Would you like to learn more about that food bank? On Monday, February 9 SBCO will host a program on the Tri Community Food Bank, its recipients and the need north of us in Pinal County. This will take place at the MountainView Country Club at 3:00 p.m. in the ballroom. Bring a friend and plan to support the food drive!
