Many Arizona families have lost income during the COVID-19 crisis. More than ever, we need your support to help these families get the diaper supplies they need. Make your 2021 AZ Charitable Tax Credit donation today!
635,000 diapers distributed in 2020. This year, our goal is 800,000. We are proud of the work we have been doing to support Arizona families during this time of Covid-19. Working with twenty-seven partner agencies, we distributed over 635,000 diapers last year and over 256,000 wipes. That said, our partner agencies are facing increased demand for services as many families still find themselves struggling because of the pandemic. Make your AZ Charitable Tax Credit donation today - up to $400 for a single filer or up to $800 for a married couple filing jointly. Together, we can get diapers to 9,000-10,000 children in Maricopa County in 2021.
Why what we do matters
Many non-profit agencies help with hunger, homelessness, and other needs. There is only one diaper bank in Phoenix that focuses on simply acquiring diapers. By taking on the responsibility of sourcing diapers and then distributing those diapers to our partner agencies, we save those organizations a great deal of time and money so they can help a greater number of Arizona families. Without us, many of our partners say they would not be able to give out any diapers to the families coming through their doors.
