Clemson University is proud to continue its partnership with Operation Hat Trick. Tying into Military Appreciation Day, Clemson-branded Operation Hat Trick (OHT) product will be available online at www.shopclemsontigers.com and in-venue during the game, as well as at other local retailers such as Tiger Sports Shop, and Academy Sports. OHT is a non-profit organization that increases awareness, support and funding for the recovery of wounded service members and veterans through the sale of branded merchandise, proceeds of which are distributed to selected organizations that support OHT’s mission.
Clemson was one of the first universities to adopt the OHT program when it launched as a national brand in 2012. Last year, Clemson was the top selling OHT collegiate partner and received recognition from OHT as a finalist of the OHT Excellence in Service Award. This award is presented to universities that demonstrate a strong commitment to OHT and OHT’s military support mission. As a recipient of the Service Aware, OHT donated $3,500 in Clemson University’s name to Purple Heart Homes – Golden Chapter in the local marketplace.
This partnership resulted in Clemson and OHT playing a role in supporting veteran and Purple Heart recipient Jason Livingston through Purple Heart Homes. Livingston, who was injured during a fire fight with the Taliban, received an upgrade to his bathroom to make it more accessible.
