As a freshman in Boston College, I was so lucky to get involved with MFM, a growing non-profit with great potential. It is the first time for me to really understand how a non-profit operates and do what I can to help people in need, something I have always dreamed of. It is extremely exciting that under the collaboration of the team, MFM has successfully started a chapter in Boston College, which offers more resources and opportunities for the organization to grow, and to achieve bigger goals in the future. I will definitely continue to work with MFM so that more people will enjoy the benefits!

Minutes for Memories is an amazing Foundation. Matt, Greg, Allison and Krystal are Fun,Caring, and Giving group of young individuals who gave my son a trip to his First Celtics game in Boston. What a fun time. They brought us the dinner first, bought him a t-shirt, and purchased awesome seats at the game.
They also went out of their way to send a jersey to him on his 16th birthday. They are so thoughtful.
We are hoping to get together again. The Group will be forever in our hearts for giving our son a memory he will never forget.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Wishing they had more resources to help out of state .

MFM is a wonderful charity with an amazing mission. Everyone involved shows a sense of passion, creativity, and teamwork that reflects their mission to create new memories to prove that an injury does not have to dictate the quality of ones life. It is simply inspiring!

For such a young foundation they have already accomplished so much!
I cannot wait to see what Matt and the team bring to the table in the future.

I have volunteered with Minutes for Memories for over a year now and have witnessed firsthand how this organization helps people living with injuries remain active in pursuing their dreams. Through the creation of positive memories, MFM aims to not let an injury define the rest of a person’s life and to ensure that hope remains to conquer all challenges. I look forward to continuing my work with MFM as it continues to grow and help others. This is an awesome organization that leaves a smile on the face of anyone involved!
