GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- In support of February’s Coyotes Cause, “Caring for our Children” Presented by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), Phoenix Coyotes President and Chief Operating Officer Douglas Moss announced today that the Coyotes will reach out to our community’s youngest patients on Wednesday, Feb. 13 with an organization-wide visit to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
 
Coyotes players, coaches and staff, as well as several players’ wives, will be at the hospital from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., sharing their time with these young fans who have faced so much.  Also helping to bring a bit of extra cheer to these special kids will be Howler – the Coyotes mascot – and The Pack dance team.
 
“Caring for our Children” is a month-long commitment by the Coyotes to bring attention to health and education issues impacting our community’s children. Throughout February, the Coyotes will invite local non-profit organizations to each home game to raise awareness and funds for their child-centered causes. Groups in attendance include the American Heart Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Childhelp and Special Olympics.
 
February’s focus on children also features a clothing drive on Feb. 24 sponsored by Swift Charities for Children to benefit the West Valley Child Crisis Center. Fans are encouraged to donate clothing outside gates 4 and 7 at Jobing.com Arena prior to the Coyotes game against the St. Louis Blues at 6:00 p.m.. Everyone who donates will be eligible for a raffle to meet Coyotes players Keith Ballard, Fredrik Sjostrom and Radim Vrbata following the game.
 
“Caring for our Children” is part of Coyotes Causes – a season-long program dedicated to partnerships among the Coyotes and various non-profits to support community outreach initiatives from October through March. Each month’s initiative includes a table with information about the cause at home games on the main concourse near Section 116.
