PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) − Arizona's Family has teamed up with 100 Club of Arizona, a nonprofit organization that assists first responders, to put on a phone bank that raises money for fallen Salt River Officer Clayton Townsend's family.

Townsend was struck and killed by a distracted driver while performing a traffic stop on the Loop 101 on Jan. 8.

He left behind a wife and 10-month-old child. A GoFundMe account has been setup to help his family. You can donate here.

Safeway and Albertson's are also stepping in to match donations received up to $20,000.

If you missed the phone bank, you can still make a donation by texting the word Fallen to 243725. You will receive a link that will allow to enter the amount of your donation and your credit card information. Standard message rates apply.
