Arizona Coyotes great Shane Doan stopped by Studio 12A Thursday to unveil his new Today in AZ segment, “Doan Makes a Difference.”

For his first stop, Doan visited a Valley Boys and Girls Club to hang with kids and spread the importance of giving back to the community. 

While he stopped by, he took the time to chat and play games with the children, including a little rock-climbing competition. 

This is just one of the many ways Phoenix-area residents can volunteer locally.
