SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) is a not-for-profit, all volunteer community organization that was founded in 1997 to help the Arizona communities and school districts between SaddleBrooke and Miami, including the San Carlos Indian Reservation. This 100 mile corridor includes more than three counties, eight school districts, Head Start programs and approximately 4,000 youngsters.


 

SBCO Volunteer of the Year

Bea Dillehunt SBCO Volunteer of the Year

On April 8th, at SaddleBrooke Community Outreach’s (SBCO) annual meeting, Bea Dillehunt was recognized as its volunteer of the year for 2023-24.

This honor is significant for an all-volunteer organization that relies upon hundreds of volunteers to implement its programs to feed, clothe, enrich and educate youngsters living in the Copper Corridor. In fact, in the 2022-23 fiscal year, SBCO volunteers contributed 72,582 hours of their time – an amount that at the national average hourly rate of $31.80 represented an eye-popping $2,308,093 in free labor.

Bea serves as the Thursday Day Manager for Kids’ Closet in Mammoth. The role involves receiving the list of students coming to the Closet each Thursday session, preparing a shopping sheet and bag for each child, conducting the volunteer meeting, checking to ensure each child leaves with a complete wardrobe, and checking the volunteers in and out. Basically, she is the “go to” person for the day, resolving any issues and helping ensure the kids and volunteers have a good experience.

Bea began working as a Kids’ Closet volunteer in 2012 and was asked to become a Day Manager after two years of volunteering. “They thought I had potential,” she recalls. “I still enjoy meeting the volunteers, many of whom are former teachers, and working with the kids.”
