GLENDALE - Howler, the Arizona Coyotes lovable mascot, is celebrating his 20th birthday on Sunday, March 5! And all he wants for his birthday is for you to help the Arizona Coyotes restock the shelves at St. Mary's Food Bank.
The Coyotes continue their long-standing supporting of St. Mary's with a food and funds drive prior to their game with the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday, March 5 at 6:30 p.m. at Gila River Arena.
St. Mary's volunteers will be stationed at all Gila River Arena entrances beginning 90 minutes prior to face-off to accept donations of non-perishable food and/or funds to help provide for those in need. Nearly one in THREE Arizona children are food insecure and don't know where their next meal will come from.
St. Mary's is desperately low on the following items: Canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, tuna and canned meals. Every fan who donates to St. Mary's at the game will receive a special "Buy One, Get One Free" ticket offer for a Coyotes game later this season!
Every dollar donated allows the Food Bank to distribute enough food to provide seven meals into the community. A $25 dollar donation will fill an entire food box - a 3-4 day supply of food for a family of four.
