Operation Hat Trick (OHT) a long time Red River partner, and the Boston Bruins not only share a love for hockey but the common pursuit to support the US military and veterans. During the 2016-2017 season the Bruins Proshop sold OHT hats and shirts, presented by Red River, with 100% of these proceeds going to various veteran organizations through the Boston Bruins Foundation. This promotion closed at the end of the season and a $42,000 was given to OHT to help various veteran organizations around the US. Here is where the money was donated to from that promotion:
- Veterans Count NH is a division of Easter Seals and is the emergency organization for veterans. They do tremendous work helping those who either need assistance immediately or who need it because the VA and other government agencies and programs have turned them down.
- Exalted Warrior Foundation facilitates an adaptive yoga instruction program that is designed for wounded warriors in the active military, veterans hospital facilities, and within communities around the country.
- New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) is a residential and transitional facility in downtown Boston that houses and takes care of the most vulnerable homeless veterans.
- We will be doing this promotion again during the 2017-18 season. (eventually we’ll link to the proshop site!)
