Arizonians for Children is a non-profit that exists to facilitate opportunities and improve the lives of abused and neglected children in foster care. They provide three home-like visitation spaces to the increasing number of children in state custody, their families, and child care providers. They also supply: toys, clothing, luggage, a tutor/mentor program, educational classes, and admissions to special events.
Since Arizonans for Children's inception in 2003, the RoomStore has furnished all three facilities with furniture, lamps, pictures, silk plants, and various other fixtures. It has been necessary to relocate two of the facilities, and both times, the RoomStore packed and moved them to the new location, and donated new furniture. In 2007, the RoomStore, also began providing warehouse space to wrap 4,000 Christmas presents for the Arizonans for Children Holiday party, and transports the presents to the Holiday party location, and returns the remaining presents to the storage facility. The RoomStore has also provided space in its Mesa Store to set up the Arizonians for Children's Life book program, which is still being used today. The RoomStore also donates raffle prizes for fundraisers, including 60" televisions, and living room sets.
The RoomStore and Campbell are doing their part to enrich and advance the lives of foster children statewide. Don't forget to bring toys to donate to the drive!
The RoomStore enjoys providing opportunities for customers and fans to interact with local athletes and celebrities, and hold special events and giveaways in its stores throughout the Valley.
