Help a group of SaddleBrooke residents help the kids. Ground has been broken for the new Kids’ Closet. The cement foundation will be poured shortly, and the one-story red steel structure is soon to be erected. 

SaddleBrooke Community Outreach, Inc. has secured the funds for this building, and is now loocking for help to furnish it with cheerful colors.

The Kick-off Campaign 4 Kids’ Closet is under way.  The main four categories for donations match four popular cactus plants that children in the service area will know.  The plants will be painted on a wall in the classroom/waiting area, and permanent plaques with the names of donors will be mounted next to the appropriate cacti.

The saguaro designation represents a donation of $500, an ocotillo will signify a $400 donation, the prickly pear equals $300, and for $100 you can have you name next to the barrel cactus.  Donations in any amount are welcome.

Forms for contributions are available in SaddleBrooke at Suite L in the Mini Mart Shopping Center on SaddleBrooke Boulevard, or on the website at

These forms have additional information about the building and its location.  This campaign will end June 30 so that plaques can be made in time for the fall 2012 grand opening.
