Garnet Hathaway launched Hath's Heroes in 2019 to give back to first responders. As part of Hath's Heroes, Hathaway provides tickets to select Capitals games to local first responders. Postgame, Hathaway meets the ticket recipients and gives them a tour of the Capitals locker room. In addition to donating tickets, Hathaway visits local fire stations throughout the season and spends time with first responders. Hathaway's great-grandfather, Garnet Mcelroy, was a firefighter in Winnipeg, and his experiences inspired Hathaway to launch Hath's Heroes.
Donations help fund programming and essentials that assist first responders in the D.C. region.
