The holidays were off to a festive beginning when a group of volunteers from SaddleBrooke Community Outreach traveled to Oracle to deliver 36 Thanksgiving Food Baskets to needy neighbors in the tri-community area. Each basket was filled with all the traditional Thanksgiving items including a large turkey and all the trimmings. In addition to these baskets, SBCO supports the Holiday Food Basket Program of the Tri-Community Food Bank with food and cash donations. This year’s efforts were supported again by the generosity of the Walmart Neighborhood Market and by donations from the community.
