Canyon State Credit Union Donates over 150,000 diapers to Child Crisis Arizona


Phoenix, AZ – Canyon State Credit Union is committed to a cause, committed to a purpose and committed to success. Thanks to the generosity of our members, staff and partners, Canyon State Credit Union delivered over 150,000 diapers during KTAR’s Mac & Gaydos’ annual Caring for Kids event benefiting Child Crisis Arizona.

Jane Dobbs, President and CEO, said “I toured Child Crisis Arizona and witnessed amazing things happening there. That’s why we think it is important to support them. These diapers make an immediate impact and put to good use as soon as they are received. Our tagline at Canyon State is Committed To YOU™. In addition to being committed to our members, we are committed to the communities we serve. We believe it is our responsibility to give back to our communities and that includes helping children right here where we live and work – making a difference for our neighbors.”

Torrie Taj, CEO of Child Crisis Arizona stated, “We would like to thank KTAR and Canyon State Credit Union for organizing and sponsoring the Fourth Annual Caring for Kids collection drive. “I am filled with joy from the outpouring of donations. Our purpose is to create hope in the hearts of vulnerable children and parents who need support. These donations make a huge difference in our effort to help children and families who are struggling.”

Child Crisis Arizona provides hope and services to vulnerable children and families. Child Crisis Arizona operates the only emergency shelters for children in the Valley, is a leading resource to license, train and support foster and adoptive families and provides early childhood education through a preschool, parenting classes, workshops and playgroups. Arizona ranks among the worst states in the U.S. for child welfare and education. With more than 18,000 children in out-of-home care, Arizona is in a foster care crisis.
