COYOTES STAFFERS VISIT HOMELESS SHELTER

Members of the Phoenix Coyotes’ Communications Department recently spent an afternoon at the newly expanded UMOM New Day Center in downtown Phoenix, a facility whose mission is to provide homeless and low-income families with food, shelter and tools to build a bridge to self-sufficiency.

In support of the center and its mission, the Coyotes’ contingent, which included forward Paul Bissonnette, toured the nearly seven-acre facility and visited and played with some of its younger residents. All youngsters were presented with a stuffed animal – a coyote of course.

“This visit marks the beginning of the Coyotes Volunteer Program," Sarah Finecey said. "Each month, a different Coyotes office department along with players and their wives, will volunteer their time in the community. It is an obligation to help serve the community in every capacity that we can."

The Coyotes not only volunteered the time of its staff members but also provided a $5,000 donation at this critical time for the Center, which recently moved to a new campus that features a wellness center, cafeteria, chapel, and multiple recreational areas for young children and teens.

“This new facility is very impressive,” said Jeff Holbrook, the Coyotes Chief Communications Officer. “Hockey is a sport loaded with good people who care about other people, much like the people who are running this facility. The Coyotes are proud to be associated with them and proud to be helping them in any way.”
