Matthew J. Fitton lost his life in a tragic car accident at the age of 20 in August 2003. A young athlete who towered over us at 6 foot 6, his giant came not from his height, but from the size of his heart. Matt was always ready with a smile or a hug to share, and a willingness to help those in need. That's why we know Matt would be happy that his memory is being kept alive though "Matt's Coats for Kids".
This year Matt's Coats for Kids marks its seventh year of practicing kindness and brightening the day of others, illustrating the character Matt displayed during his life. Our area churches, community organizations and businesses have all joined together in this mission to benefit area children.
Since the Fall of 2004, "Matt's Coats for Kids" has helped to distribute thousands of coats donated by members of our community to children in need for the winter months. Please help us keep Matt's memory with us by dropping off your gently used or new items of winter outerwear and help keep our local kids warm this year!
Matt will always be with us and will guide us to make our lives better by helping others.
