JONESBORO, Ark. (12/17/10) — Arkansas State basketball fans can share the joy of Christmas with local youth by participating in the first-annual ASU Basketball Teddy Bear Toss at the next two A-State home basketball games.

The Arkansas State women's basketball team will host Charlotte Dec. 19 at 2:05 p.m., and the ASU men's team will play host to Savannah State Dec. 20 at 7:05 p.m.  Fans are encouraged to bring a new or slightly-used medium-sized stuffed animal to the games to toss onto the court at halftime.  All of the stuffed animals thrown onto the court at the two games will be donated to local youth organizations for distribution in time for Christmas.
