Now Under the Leadership of The Matt Garcia Foundation
Save. Our. Activities. Programs.
Attention concerned citizens of
As you all may know, the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School district
has come upon hard times. Recent budget cuts have closed schools and severely
limited valuable resources for our youth. Included in these cuts are secondary
education stipends that fund athletic and co-curricular programs in middle
school and high school. These are vital activities that provide a well-rounded
high school experience for our youth, and they must be preserved.
2010, an effort began to raise funds solely to save the athletics programs in
our high schools in Fairfield. This was spearheaded by a group of parents who
called themselves S.O.A.P (Save. Our. Athletics. Programs). This original
S.O.A.P. successfully raised over $100,000 for our sports programs. However, by
2011 the impact of S.O.A.P had diminished and no longer had the same level of
support from the community.
The newly constructed S.O.A.P is now a
fundraising committee under the leadership of the Matt Garcia Foundation. It has
expanded its vision to encompass the many influences that shape the positive
educational experiences of your youth.
Therefore Save. Our. Athletics,
Programs has become Save. Our. Activities. Programs. As a subcommittee of The
Matt Garcia Foundation, the S.O.A.P Advisory Board is headed up by a foundation
board member, Dwight Lundy, and consists of five youth representatives: Brittany
Chudzinski, Leilani Reyes, Eric Brimer, Cristian Cobos, and Darius
The Matt Garcia Foundation will provide valuable direction and
accountability to the group. The Foundation’s own vision to support youth, stop
crime, and strengthen our community is a perfect fit for S.O.A.P.’s mission of
youth empowerment. We are here to ensure our Fairfield youth are provided with
the best high school experience possible. These programs are crucial – please
join us in helping to save them. Thank you!
