Crunch Presents Check To Upstate University Hospital

Syracuse Crunch Nolan Valleau (8) playing against the Belleville Senators in American Hockey League (AHL) action at the War Memorial Arena in Syracuse, New York on Friday, November 2, 2018. Syracuse won 5-4.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Syracuse Crunch presented Upstate University Hospital with a $5,000 initial donation from the sale of Puck Off COVID-19 T-shirts.
“It’s an honor and privilege for the Crunch to be able to support the outstanding work being done on an ongoing basis by the brave and talented workers at Upstate University Hospital,” said Crunch Owner Howard Dolgon. “They continually dedicate their life and risk their health so that others can get well. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.”
The tees, which feature “Puck Off COVID-19” on the front with “We will be back… stronger” across the back, are an initiative by the team to support local COVID-19 relief efforts. Shirts are still available at www.syracusecrunch.com/stronger. The Crunch will make additional donations as sales continue.
In addition to the recent monetary donation, the team previously donated meals to healthcare workers screening and treating patients affected by COVID-19 at Upstate University Hospital through the Fuel The Force initiative with Tully’s Good Times and CopperTop Tavern. Fan donations and a contribution from the Crunch Foundation helped feed 220 front-line workers in April.
