Garnet Hathaway and the Washington Capitals team chef Robert Wood have teamed up to donate meals to first responders.

Through Wood’s company SuperFd and Garnet Hathaway‘s “Hath’s Heroes”, the pair are providing meals to first responders. Any amount donated will make a difference and if you’re lucky Hathaway might even give you a shoutout on Twitter.

Hathaway will match the first $5,000 in donations and SuperFd will provide a free meal to high risk individuals with every first responder meal that’s purchased.

“Please, if you’re in a position to donate, any amount will make a difference. Thanks!”, Hathaway tweeted out. To make a donation click here.

Earlier in March, Hathaway received trail mix packets from Power Up Snacks to distribute to local first responders who are counted on to help try to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic.

It’s great to see Hathaway fit right in the locker room in his first season in D.C. and to see him give back through his “Hath’s Heroes” program. The forward has already seemed to win the fans over for his gritty and physical play.

Hath’s Heroes was inspired by Hathaway’s great grandfather who was a firefighter in Winnipeg. The 28 year old donated tickets back during the program’s launch in December to firefighters and even visited some fist responders in the Arlington County Fire Department. He was even joined by the team dogs Captain and Scout.

Hathaway recently recorded a new podcast with his line buddy Nic Dowd. You can listen to the new Between Two Blue Lines episode here.

He also joined NBC Sports Washington’s Rob Carlin for the Capitals Talk podcast to talk more about his Hath’s Heroes program. New Capitals defenseman and Tik Tok star Brendan Dillon also made a donation. You should too!

Hathaway has been a huge star on the fourth line with nine goals and seven assists for 16 points. He also has 189 hits. Speaking of hits, you gotta love his goal song “What is Love” by Haddaway.
