Matching Bucks for Babies

Annual Baby Diaper Drive Collects Emergency Funds and Receives a Challenge Match From Bank of Arizona

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 18, 2011) - Join Homeward Bound, Arizona's largest transitional housing provider serving homeless and domestic violence families, as they embark upon the 13th Annual Baby Diaper Drive to collect baby supplies and emergency baby funds for Homeward Bound families.

As many of our community members continue to struggle financially, it is more important than ever to rally around the cause of children and their well-being. Due to the cost of diapers and baby wipes and because they cannot be purchased with food stamps, many children are forced to go without. In addition, medication, hearing aids and other health-related needs of children are often unmet. Homeward Bound's Diaper Lady team of volunteers has set the goal of collecting 100,000 diapers (larger sizes 4, 5 and 6) and $75,000 in emergency baby funds to fill the gaps and to ensure a bright, healthy future for babies and toddlers in need.

Bank of Arizona has generously agreed to match donations up to $5000 if made to the Emergency Baby Fund before December 31, 2011. "We are very pleased to be helping the families at Homeward Bound once again," said Jacki Grainger, Community Relations Manager for Bank of Arizona. "Every dollar donated goes directly to the children and insures a better life and future for them."
