At 21 years of age, Matt Garcia was the youngest elected City official in Northern CA. Elected on the premise –

Community Service Day

Last Saturday of Every Month (weather permitting)

Downtown Starbucks in Fairfield @ 9:00am

At The Matt Garcia Foundation we don’t want to complain about this, we want to create solutions to problems. It is with this spirit that we began our Monthly Community Clean Ups.

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.

Gun Buyback

On September 2, 2008 Matt was shot and killed by an assailant who purchased his gun at a garage sale.

Enter… The Matt Garcia Foundation who is a part sponsor for the Solano County Gun Buyback program.

We are a community working together…
