Mission: Memories have the potential to lift people up when they need it most. At Minutes for Memories we realize that it only takes a few minutes to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Results: In 2012 Minutes for Memories helped start up a power wheel chair soccer team in Central Massachusetts and provide them with their initial funding. In addition they took a young boy from Worcester, Massachusetts who was severely injured in a car accident to his first Red Sox game with his family.
Since then We have created memories at the Boston Celtics, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Concerts and more.

June 2013 my son,19 at the time, was in a car accident and suffered a serious tbi. His recovery has been nothing short of remarkable but like most tbis it has been a marathon not a sprint. Minutes for Memories came into my son's marathon and gave him a break from the often mundane and at times very difficult journey he is traveling. They have touched our family with their genuine kindness and compassion. My son went to the Celtics season opener with his dad, me, and his uncle and Matt and Greg from Minutes for Memories. He had a wonderful time and seeing him so happy meant so much to all of us. He tells everyone what Minutes for Memories did for him and how "awesome" it was. As a parent, what Minutes for Memories, brought to my son and our family was a minute to forget the difficulties of life and create a memory of laughing, fun, and togetherness.
I have had the pleasure to work with Matt and the rest of the board members as their trusted tax advisor and also as an attendee of some of their events. All individuals involved with the foundation truly live up to the mission at hand and continue to make this a truly unique organization.
