Support local first responders

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. Throughout the season, Schwarber will visit local agencies to provide resources and gratitude.

Schwarber’s Neighborhood Heroes recognizes first responders by honoring their heroism, courage, and devotion to duty. Nationals fans are invited to contribute to the Heroes Fund, managed by Washington Nationals Philanthropies. All funds raised will be granted in full to local non-profits supporting first responders and community engagement.

Kyle Schwarber has selected the following three area organizations as recipients of the Schwarber’s Neighborhood Heroes Fund.

The Washington DC Police Foundation

The Washington DC Police Foundation supports the community outreach and youth programming efforts of the Washington Metropolitan Police Department. All programming prioritizes building positive police-community relationships and lasting mentorships.
