Coyotes announce they will support arena employees

New, comments

Arena staff hopefully have one less thing to worry about during the suspended season.

NHL: APR 08 Wild at Coyotes

At this point, everyone’s life has been affected in some way by the coronavirus. And while it may be frustrating for fans who are missing the remaining NHL season, the people who are hardest hit are the employees of the arenas. Thankfully the Arizona Coyotes announced yesterday that they will be helping to support arena workers.

The Coyotes will not only be assisting Gila River Arena employees, but they will be assisting part-time employees of the Coyotes’ AHL affiliate the Tucson Roadrunners as well.

In addition to helping the arena staff, the Coyotes announced last night they will be assisting in another important way. The arena had 3,200 pounds of food that would be served at the Coyotes’ upcoming homestand. The Coyotes will be donating that food that would have been served to local food banks to help the needy.

It is great to see the Coyotes organization step up and support their staff and the community. Unfortunately, in times like these there are stories of people being greedy and it is great to see the Coyotes step up and do the right thing.
