The children we serve need these items the most

In-kind donations are vital to Child Crisis Arizona, we thank you for your generous support. In effort to provide what is best for the children in our care, we no longer accept used in-kind donations. Our goal is to provide the children we serve with quality, long-lasting items, maybe for the first time in their lives. If you do have used items to donate, consider dropping them off at the nearest Goodwill location.
