Matthew was born in 1993 in Guatemala and thanks to Robbinsdale Schools he became fluent in Spanish. His family has been a long-time supporter of NPH USA, a nonprofit that transforms the lives of children and young adults in Latin America and the Caribbean. Matt visited NPH homes in Guatemala in 2008 and 2017, as well as the NPH home in Peru in 2018. Matt sponsored a chico (boy) in Guatemala, and he would be proud and excited to know that he will continue to provide for NPH through his Foundation.
A Love for Mose
Matt also LOVED dogs. While he loved any dog, his deepest love was for Golden Retrievers, and Matt and his fiancée Julia were proud parents of Mose. To honor Matt’s LOVE for Goldens, his family has partnered with Helping Paws, a nonprofit that enhances people’s independence and quality of life through the use of Assistance Dogs, that just happen to be Golden Retrievers. Matt would LOVE the fact that his Foundation is helping people to enhance their lives thanks to Golden Dogs!
I love you all, I always did and I always will
