Organized by: Lauren McAlexander

THE STORY:

Matthew McAlexander was a young man we all loved, valued and enjoyed. As a Firefighter/EMT at Piney Grove Fire Department in Kernersville, North Carolina, Matt was selfless and truly giving to his community. Matt was a trusted friend, confidant, musician and the type of person who would go out of his way to make someone feel better about any situation they found themselves in.

On July 5, 2011, Matt was tragically taken from us before the magnitude of his influence could be fully realized. Today, we have the opportunity to honor Matthew and all the good he stood for. We are asking his friends, family and brothers in sisters in Public Safety to assist us in honoring this young man who gave so much to his community.

We have partnered with the Foundation For The Carolinas (FFTC) to maintain and manage the Matthew McAlexander Memorial Scholarship. To date, we have awarded three scholarships to deserving students who like Matt, make a difference in the world around them on a day-to-day basis.

On this 5 year anniversary, we are challenging the people who knew and loved Matthew to raise $100 in his honor. In doing so, this will allow the scholarship to sustain itself and assist individuals in the community to follow their dreams.

This is for the 100 phone calls Matthew made to check in on people. The 100 text messages he sent to remind you he was thinking of you. The 100's of miles he drove to spend time with this loved ones. The 100's of hugs and smiles he blessed us with every time we were in his presence. This is for Matthew.
