At the last Ottawa Sens Vs. Toronto Maple Leaf game Matt was brought down during a commercial break and awarded the 2010 Ottawa Senators Good Neighbour Award. Over the past year Matt has been involved with countless volunteer initiatives including the Ottawa Foodie Challenge, The Ottawa Condo Clothing Drive, United Way, The OCRI School Breakfast program, etc. “There are so many other people that deserve recognition for the volunteer work that they do for the less fortunate. Growing up in a small town has allowed me to experience and appreciate the goodness of a neighbour providing a helping hand. Upon moving downtown I have taken theses values with me and feel the importance of giving back to the community.” says Matt.
