Syracuse Crunch To Hold Rise Above Poverty Drive Presented by Cryomech Feb. 3 and 4

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Syracuse Crunch are partnering with Cryomech to hold a clothing and necessities drive supporting Rise Above Poverty when the team hosts the Charlotte Checkers on Friday, Feb. 3 and Saturday, Feb. 4.


The Crunch will have collection bins in both lobbies during the weekend’s games to collect clothing and necessities, such as coats and jackets, hoodies and sweatshirts and toothpaste. Youth sized clothing items are specifically needed. All items collected will be donated to Rise Above Poverty.


Rise Above Poverty provides toiletries, deodorant, socks, underwear, winter coats, hoodies, and feminine hygiene products for those students most in need. Without these items, students often cannot attend school, have trouble focusing on their studies, and struggle academically and socially. Rise Above Poverty also focus on engaging the community in the discussion of the damaging effects of homelessness and poverty in Syracuse, and mobilizing the community to take actionable responses to address the growing issue.
