Matt is a talented, hardworking young man who, up until COVID 19 had been working 3 part time jobs to support himself.  At 20 years old, he was on his own and making his way as best he could all the while battling advanced Crohn's Disease.  With a good attitude, he enjoyed an independent life, working 3 jobs without benefits, and endured Crohn's.  Matt never has given up.  With determination and a positive attitude, he has thrived.  

When COVID 19 hit, one of the companies he worked for wasn't considered essential and closed.  Matt lost that job.  The second company lost their contract that Matt was working on and let him go. 

Then, last week, unexpectantly, Matt's mom passed away (non-COVID).  Matt's father had died when he was a small boy so this left him with both parents gone. 

To provide a bit of financial stability in an unstable world for our dear nephew, we are seeking your support and generosity.  Matt has not asked for help.  He does everything to make ends meet on his own.  However, in his young life, he carries more on his shoulders than most twice his age. 

Any help you can give Matt would be appreciated.  Thank you!  We are grateful for you and your wonderful generosity.
