"OHT has been involved in Duluth for several years now and has made donations to MACV to help end homelessness. We are very proud of that," said Dot Sheehan, Founder/CEO of Operation Hat Trick. "This new partnership with Duluth Pack is very special to us because it allows us to add another first-class partner who is passionate about helping veterans in need. Plus, we have a love for the game of Ice Hockey, so it's a match made in Heaven," added Sheehan.
Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) is a Veteran-focused nonprofit organization providing services and support to end Veteran homelessness in Minnesota. They envision a future where every Veteran and their family has access to sustainable housing.
Operation Hat Trick has been successfully working with organizations for years to support their mission of awareness and assistance for the recovery of wounded service members and veterans; a natural fit for supporting those in Duluth’s local community that have selflessly fought and sacrificed for our county. The partnership between the organization and Duluth Pack has been in the works for over a year.
"Operation Hat Trick is proud to partner with iconic Made in the USA brand and company Duluth Pack. Together we will make a difference in the community by offering a collection of Duluth Pack products with the Operation Hat Trick logo on them," continued Dot Sheehan, President and CEO of Operation Hat Trick. "Proceeds from the partnership will be donated to the MN Assistance Council for Veterans, filling some critical gaps in care for local veterans in need. Bottom line - the monies raised in Duluth will stay in Duluth. We are extremely thankful to become a member of the Duluth Pack family."
“We’re incredibly honored to partner with our friends at Operation Hat Trick,” said Tom Sega, Duluth Pack’s President and CEO. “Duluth Pack proudly supports our veterans and troops, and we are ecstatic to continue doing so in another capacity alongside a fantastic organization that focuses on those in our community.”
