Garnet Hathaway and Power Up Partner to Provide for First Responders

Hathaway wanted to show his appreciation for those putting their lives on the line for the safety of the community

Garnet Hathaway feels that now more than ever, it's important to show gratitude to our first responders in the community who are on the front line facing this pandemic to help ensure we are all safe.

Power Up sponsors Hathaway and Dowd's podcast, 'Between Two Blue Lines', and have been wanting to get involved in both of their community player programs.

The connection between Power Up, Hathaway and Hath's Heroes presented a great opportunity to allow Hathaway to show his appreciation to the first responders by donating a multitude of Power Up snacks to the Arlington County and Fairax County fire and police stations.

"When most of us are staying in our homes, either working or taking care of our families, the men and women in First Responder units all over our area continue to put our community's wellbeing at the top of their agenda," Hathaway says. "They are always on call, always there for us, especially throughout this pandemic. And, of course, they need to eat too. Personally, I can't think of a better snack than what Power Up offers."

Tweet from @GarnetHathaway: Thanks to @PowerupSnacks for supplying trail mix packs to keep our local FIRST RESPONDERS going during this difficult time #ALLCAPS #HathsHeroes

Tweet from @ArlingtonVaFD: Since our crews can���t really telework @GarnetHathaway @lindsaycars @PowerupSnacks sent us some care packages to say thanks during this tough time. It���s a reminder to take care of each other and stay strong. So keep checking on your neighbors, from at least 6 feet away of course.

"Our deepest gratitude to Mr. Hathaway for his generosity during this unprecedented crisis in our community. His recognition of the men and women in law enforcement who tirelessly protect and selflessly serve their community is an invaluable reminder to our officers that the public continues to support their first responders," said Fairfax County Police Captain Tonny Kim.

As we continue to fight the virus to stay safe and healthy, please consider helping in your own way, if possible by reaching out to your local stations and seeing if you can send them meals or grocery store gift cards.
