The New Jersey Devils are donating 10,000 tickets for the 2020-21 season to RWJBarnabas Health front-line health care workers in honor of National Nurses Day and Week.
The donation is just one of three initiatives the club is announcing Wednesday morning. There also is a “Stick Taps at 7” social media tribute campaign and a “Pay it Forward” season ticket member and plan holder ticket donation program.
To launch these new initiatives, the team released a video that honors New Jersey’s health care responders. It features players Kyle Palmieri, Travis Zajac, Jack Hughes and others.
The initiatives follow significant monetary and medical supply-based donations made by Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment founders Josh Harris and David Blitzer and the Devils to the RWJBarnabas Health Emergency Response Fund over the past two months.
RWJBarnabas Health is the official health care provider of the team.
“Each passing day, we are filled with more gratitude for front-line health care workers who continue to dedicate themselves to help the residents of New Jersey, and we are humbled and honored to show our appreciation for them with these new team initiatives,” Devils President Jake Reynolds said.
“We are proud to stand alongside our partners, RWJBarnabas Health, as we salute front-line workers whose strength and resilience mirrors the determination of our New Jersey communities, our players and our Devils family.”
