HAMPTON, N.H., Monday, February 6, 2023 – Operation Hat Trick (OHT), an innovative non-profit supporting the recovery of wounded service members and veterans, announced today they have made donations to two non-profit organizations. The donations support an assortment of outreach programs for wounded and recovering service members and veterans.

The organizations receiving the donations are Azimuth Check Foundation and Kentucky Wounded Heroes. These donations will aid in veteran support via outdoor mental health therapeutic experiences.

About Operation Hat Trick

Operation Hat Trick is recognized by GuideStar as a Platinum seal of transparency organization for its responsible stewardship (https:/learn.guidestar.org/platinum). Dedicated to Nate Hardy and Mike Koch, two Navy SEALs who were killed in Iraq in 2008 and are buried side by side at Arlington National Cemetery, OHT never forgets their sacrifice.

OHT is differentiated from other veteran-focused nonprofits by its innovative operating model. OHT pioneered the first national philanthropic co-branded cause marketing retail apparel licensing program. Rather than relying on donations to raise money, OHT receives a royalty on every product purchase of co-branded apparel and merchandise in conjunction with over 500 supporting American colleges and universities, as well as many NHL, NBA and MiLB teams. 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.
