Phoenix Coyotes help out St. Mary's Food Bank

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Phoenix Coyotes hockey team, along with their wives, visited a St. Mary's Food Bank transportation center on Friday. 

They distributed emergency food boxes and other food items for the hundreds of clients who visit St. Mary's each day. 

The Coyotes will also be supporting St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance with a Food and Funds Drive on Saturday, Nov. 16, when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Arena.  

St. Mary's volunteers will be stationed at all arena entrances beginning 90 minutes prior to face-off. 

They will be accepting donations of non-perishable food and funds to help provide to those in need this holiday season.

Every dollar donated allows the food bank to distribute enough food to provide seven meals into the community.
