As the son of a decorated police chief and part of a family with a long history of first responders, Kyle Schwarber recognizes the unique sacrifice first responders and their families make to serve the community and has always been committed to making an impact and difference in their lives.
This year, in partnership with Kyle, Nationals Philanthropies launched Schwarber’s Neighborhood Heroes Fund to support local first responders by honoring their heroism, courage, and devotion to duty.
With the support of fans, Nationals Philanthropies, and a match from Kyle, the fund raised $25,000 during the first half of the 2021 season. Funds raised will be passed through in full to three local non-profits supporting first responders and community engagement: The Washington DC Police Foundation, TAPS, & Food on the Stove.
