SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Syracuse Crunch will hold their 13th Annual Stanley Steemer Tired Teddy Toss on Saturday, Dec. 9 when the teams hosts the Utica Comets 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 scores their first goal on Dec. 9, fans will toss the puffy pets onto the ice. The cuddly critters will be collected and refurbished by Stanley Steemer before being donated to a local charity supporting the Central New York community.

Fans are encouraged to bring new and gently used stuffed animals to the Crunch office now through Saturday, Dec. 9. The team will also have collection bins inside both building entrances during the Dec. 8 game.

Destiny USA will also have a collection bin at the level 1 guest services desk located under the carousel where fans can drop off stuffed animals to be tossed and donated at the Dec. 9 game.

Stanley Steemer is locally owned and operated. Stanley Steemer is the first carpet cleaning service to be certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation, by removing an average of 94 percent of common household allergens.
