Tired Teddy Version in Syracuse

Syracuse cleans up lightly used bears in their Tired Teddy Toss.

The Crunch have their own twist on the Teddy Bear Toss, tied into their partner for the event Stanley Steemer.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Syracuse Crunch have rescheduled their 11th Annual Stanley Steemer Tired Teddy Toss for Wednesday, Dec. 8 when the team hosts the Cleveland Monsters at the Upstate Medical University Arena at 7 p.m.

The Crunch and Stanley Steemer encourage fans to join the team this holiday season in collecting new and gently used stuffed animals for local children. When the Crunch score their first goal on Dec. 8, fans will toss the puffy pets onto the ice. The cuddly critters will be collected and refurbished by Stanley Steemer before being donated to The Salvation Army.

Once the stuffed animals are refurbished, they will be brought to the Salvation Army’s Agency Distribution Day event, which supports more than 40 community agencies with their toy needs. Local agencies such as McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center, YMCA of Syracuse and the Vera House sign up to receive toys, books, and teddies from The Salvation Army’s Agency Distribution Day, which they distribute to their clients to ensure every child in Onondaga County receives something special on Christmas.

Fans are encouraged to bring new and gently used stuffed animals to the Crunch office now through Wednesday, Dec. 8.

Anyone who brings in a stuffed animal will be able to purchase tickets to the Dec. 8 game for $19. Fans may also bring stuffed animals to toss with them to the game on Dec. 8.
