September 1, 2021 : Matt Garcia Day

On September 1st, 2008, my son, Fairfield City Councilman, Matt Garcia, was murdered. It is hard to believe that it has been almost 13 years since we lost Matt.

The City of Fairfield recognizes September 1st. as The Matt Garcia Day.

Matt LOVED Fairfield! Leading up to September 1st, be 1 of 100 and make a donation of $100.00 to receive your Iconic Memorabilia Shirt of Matt and embroidered STAND with FFINEST Hat and FFI♥U logo to HELP Keep Matts Dream Alive.

You can place your order here, shop.fairfieldiloveu.com, and/or purchase & pick up your orders at the FFI♥U Store, 3067 Travis Blvd, Fairfield, CA 94533

All Proceeds go to Support Youth, Help Stop Crime & Strengthen Our Communities. These are three campaign promises Matt made when he was elected.

Thanks for keeping Matt's Spirit & Legacy Alive as #WE live out Matt's campaign promises! I am so grateful for your support!

Matt's Mom, Teresa
President of the Matt Garcia Foundation

Join Us for Our Monthly Community Cleanup This Saturday!!

June 26, 2021 
9:00am – 11:00am

Meet by the open field by 700 Texas Street

The Matt Garcia Foundation doesn't want to complain about this, we want to create solutions to problems. It is with this spirit that we began our Monthly Community Cleanups.

On the last Saturday of every month, volunteers get together and clean up a neighborhood in Fairfield. We pick up trash, work on landscaping paint windows, fix fences – all in an effort to improve our community. This is another example of community coming together to help make a difference.

The Matt Garcia Foundation Dream Team, is all about stepping up and stepping out of ourselves to serve others and our communities to be a part of the solution. Matt would say " if you see a piece of garbage on the ground, please just pick it up" How simple is that! So, that is what we do.

The Power of Laughter

Few things are more beneficial to a person's overall well-being than laughter. In fact, a good sense of humor is not only an indicator of better mental health, it's an indicator of better physical health as well.

Our Search for Purpose & Meaning

Tyrone Stokes, Josiah Ruff, Leonard Sicilian, Libo Mngomezulu

"It’s impossible to feel dread when you have a compelling future... a powerful mission or vision in front of you. It’s hard to drudge through life when there is MEANING attached to your future...

You can’t live in darkness when you believe your future is bright. Perhaps the problem then, is that many of us believe the FUTURE will not be better than the PAST.

Without meaning life is useless and worthless. Without meaning we give up on life. We can NOT GIVE UP on life and we can not give up on our best life."
