Check out the awesome things we’ve been doing with the community of Fargo-Moorhead!
Brightening a Customer's Spirits
Helping a Member of the Matt's FamilyWhen we say you’re apart of the Matt’s family, we mean it! One of our loyal customers came in not too long ago to get some work done on their F-150 and as we always enjoy hearing what is going on their lives, we got some saddening news from Jeff and Rachel. Their son, Adam, was in the hospital and it was not a good situation. Vern, our General Manager, let our team know and we wanted to do something to brighten Adam’s spirits. As we learned a little more about what Adam was going through, we knew we wanted to make sure he was comfortable and had some entertainment as he was going home. We gave them a Matt’s Auto blanket, a water bottle, and some games! We hope he has been able to play games, had lots of laughs, and enjoys his holiday weekend. Adam and his family are in our thoughts and prayers and we are so honored to have them as a part of the Matt’s Family.

Armed Forces Day
Honoring our Local HeroesIn honor of Armed Forces Day, our social media followers shared with us photos of their favorite veteran or current active duty military member. By doing this, they were entered to select a charity that Matt’s Automotive can donate to that benefits courageous veterans. Larry K. was nominated and chose the charity Hometown Hero Outdoors. Thank you to all active-duty military and our veterans!
National Nurse Appreciation Day
Matt’s Automotive wanted to celebrated National Nurses Day by rewarding some special nurses in the F-M area with a free lunch on us! We partnered with Frank’s Lounge and Texas Roadhouse to give Kaylee S. and Jenny A. a free lunch to them and three of their co-workers. Our whole Matt’s Automotive team appreciates everything you do for the community to keep us safe and healthy. You have been our heroes long before this pandemic came along.

Giving Hearts Day
An Icy ChallengeWe hope everyone had an awesome Giving Hearts Day! Two of our brave technicians did the ice bucket challenge for CCRI—Creative Care for Reaching Independence to help them raise money during such an important event in the F-M area.
Supporting our Next Entrepreneurs
Matt and the team made one little entrepreneur very happy when we ordered some products from Rayden’s Creations. When his mother participated in our 2019 Day of Service, we were so excited to hear that her son had created his own business, selling chapsticks and bath bombs, with a portion of the proceeds going to Homeward Animal Shelter. We were so happy to help support our young entrepreneurs and look forward to seeing your company, Rayden’s Creations, grow!
