Brightening a Customer's Spirits

Helping a Member of the Matt's Family

When 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.

A Night of Fun with the Team

Sanford Children's Hospital Donation

Earlier this year, Matt and his wife were able to take a trip to Mexico thanks to Dakota Wholesale Tire and Tires Only, along with other tire dealers from the surrounding area. During this trip, there was a super fun scavenger hunt where the top 2 winners would get $1,000 to donate to any charity of their choice. Matt was one of those winners and decided he wanted to give his donation to Sanford Children’s Fargo. In June, we were able to meet with a couple of staff members and give them the donation. Thank you to all your staff and everything you do for the children!

National Cheese Day

Want to hear something cheesy? It was National Cheese Day on June 4th! Our team agreed that the best way to celebrate was to throw some bread in the mix and make some grilled cheese for an afternoon snack! You could even say they were “grate”!

Honoring our Local Heroes

Thank you to all active-duty military and our veterans!

Congratulations to Jeanine H. for winning our Mother’s Day gift!
