GLENDALE – Coyotes volunteers, including players David Moss and Connor Murphy, recently helped build a ramp so an active senior citizen can better access her Valley home.

Working with Rebuilding Together Phoenix, the Coyotes volunteers spent about three hours constructing and then positioning the ramp for 88-year-old Eloise Lindly, whose family is a military family.
“It’s special to give back to the people who defend our freedom and do so much for our country,” said Moss, who also has family members with military ties. “It’s cool to be able to give back, especially where it’s something hands on like this where you feel like you’re being a part of building something and really helping someone else’s life out.”
Eloise’s late husband served in the Navy during WWII and her two sons served in Vietnam.
“It’s an honor to be here helping her,” Murphy said. “Her and her family have contributed so much to our country. We’re fortunate to have them as Coyotes fans and to be in the presence of them. To be able to give back to them in any way is not even close to enough to what they deserve.”
