Sig Sauer and Operation Hat Trick are teaming up to offer a line of apparel focused at raising awareness and funds for wounded veterans.
For their part, Sig Sauer is providing branded OHT apparel on its website with a portion of the proceeds from each item donated back to the non-profit.
OHT provides a variety of support services to wounded armed forces members. From helping pay for therapeutic mattresses for those with spinal injuries to providing airfare to family members traveling to be with their injured loved one, the organization aims to fill any gaps holding vets back.
A variety of apparel is available for purchase to include three t-shirt styles, for both men and women, as well as five new hats. The gear will feature both the OHT and Sig Sauer logos.
Tom Taylor, Sig’s chief marketing officer and executive vice president of commercial sales, said that the company is proud to pair with an organization geared towards serving those that serve America.
“Operation Hat Trick is a volunteer organization that has grown from humble beginnings to a wide reaching service organization, and we are proud to be part of that mission,” Taylor said in a statement Tuesday.
“Sig has a long history of support for those who serve and for our veterans. We provide support with our products, but just as importantly, we like to work with organizations that benefit these great American,” he added.
OHT was first established in 2008 at the University of New Hampshire, the same state that Sig Sauer calls home.
“Being right here in N.H. where OHT started makes a lot of sense and this partnership will help us do what we do-support those service member and veterans who are recovering from visible and invisible injuries,” Dot Sheehan, President and CEO of OHT said in a statement.
Hats are going for $25 while shirts are priced at $36.
