PAYING IT BACK. AND FORWARD.
Justin was surrounded by a strong support group growing up, from his parents and family, to coaches, neighbors and teammates. Having a community he could count on made all the difference — so he’s made it a priority to give back to the neighborhoods, towns and state he’s called home.
At every Red Wings home game, Justin hosts Abby’s All Stars for an elementary school student and a guest, who are selected from submissions to Red Wings for Reading, a program he helped start to encourage children to read outside the classroom. Justin also participates in many other volunteer and charitable efforts throughout the Michigan.
