Newark, NJ – Tonight, the New Jersey Devils and the Harris Family Charitable Foundation will host more than 50 youth and volunteers from After-School All-Stars (ASAS) Newark chapter as the Devils play the Montreal Canadiens at 7 p.m. ET.
The Devils will also recognize 11-year-old ASAS youth Imani Uzzell from Dr. George Washington Carver Elementary School as the Walmart Community Playmaker. Uzzell has been a role model to countless youth this past year as she made her way onto the school’s honor roll. As part of the Walmart Community Playmaker, Uzell will receive a $100 Walmart gift card and an in-game recognition.
Additional ASAS youth and volunteers will be honored and recognized through the Fan Zam experience and pregame Hi-Five Experience. Following the game, the group will also go on the ice for a group photo.
The night is inspired by the Harris Family Charitable Foundation’s support for ASAS’ continued expansion throughout the northeast via a three-year, three-city, $900,000 grant. With this three-year, three-city plan, the Harris Family Charitable Foundation aims to bring a high-quality after-school and sports programs to three of its target geographies. Since 2016, the Harris Family Charitable Foundation has launched three programs with ASAS in Newark, Philadelphia and Camden.
