Operation Hat Trick Supports Wounded and Recovering Service Members and Veterans with Donations to Three Organizations; Reaches Milestone of donating $1.9 million since 2014

HAMPTON, N.H. (January 7, 2021) – Operation Hat Trick, a nonprofit that supports the recovery of wounded service members and veterans through the sale of its branded merchandise, recently made donations to three organizations dedicated to supporting service members and veterans. Those organizations are The Azimuth Check Foundation, Veterans Healing Farm and Northeast Passage.

The donations will be used in many ways, including wellness programs, workshops, food cultivation, and community engagement through sports programs. These donations have also elevated the total amount donated to organizations that fit the OHT mission to $1.9 million since 2014.

Operation Hat Trick began in 2008 in honor of two fallen Navy SEALS, Nate Hardy and Mike Koch, who are buried next to each other at Arlington National Cemetery. The nonprofit works with colleges and universities, sports leagues, companies and fans across the U.S. to honor active-duty military and veterans through the sale of its branded merchandise.

“Operation Hat Trick is proud of the support we have received and continue to receive, thus making it possible for us to have an impact and make a difference for those in need as we strive to fill some critical gaps in care,” said Dot Sheehan, founder, president/CEO of Operation Hat Trick. “Our mission is to support the recovery of wounded service members and veterans, so the missions of these organizations fit perfectly, and the need is greater, perhaps now, more than ever.”
