Operation Hat Trick (OHT) Makes Donations to Four Organizations Supporting Veteran Outreach

HAMPTON, N.H., April 13, 2021 – Operation Hat Trick (OHT), an innovative non-profit supporting the recovery of wounded service members and veterans, announced today they have made donations to four non-profit organizations. The donations support a variety of outreach programs for wounded and recovering service members and veterans.

The organizations receiving the donations are Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, Warriors and Quiet Waters, Friends of Disabled Veterans, and Semper Fi Fund. These donations will aid in the emotional outreach to veterans through retreats and mental wellness activities, as well as new, mortgage free homes for veterans with significant injuries.

“We are thrilled and proud to make donations to all four of these organizations,” said Dot Sheehan, Founder and CEO of OHT. “We are so grateful for the help these organizations will provide to those veterans in need, enabling them to lead more independent, healthy lives now, perhaps more than ever before.”

Its products are also available via online retailers such as Fanatics, Amazon and national retailers including Cracker Barrel, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Academy Sports & Outdoors, Kohl’s, Lids, Scheels and more.

About Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors

OHTJared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors was formed in October of 2009 by retired Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen after he returned home from his USO trip to US Military Bases in the Middle East. Jared was moved by the commitment, dedication, and sacrifices that our soldiers make every day to protect our freedom. He wanted to say thank you to every soldier in the only way that Jared knows how. By embracing the conflict and making a positive life-changing difference in the lives of those who need it most, Jared and his JAH4WW will help make life for wounded vets just a little bit easier.
