Alton community rallying to help photographer Matt Fassett

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Last week Matt Fassett, a local senior citizen and photographer from the town of Alton, was robbed of his lap-top and all back-up drives. These items contained all of Matt's photos, including those already prepared for waiting customers.

Matt is a kind and generous man who lives a life of modest means and not only did not deserve this loss, but will have a very hard time financially trying to replace his equipment.

As outraged citizens, and people who know how much Matt Fassett has given to this community, we want to try to help him recoup a bit of his loss. We have set up a fund at TD Bank in Alton and would like the town and surrounding community members to know how they can help. Contributions can be sent to:

The Matt Fassett Fund
TD Bank
92 Main Street
Alton, NH 03809

Please help us spread the word of this attempt to raise funds for the purchase of equipment Matt will need to continue his livelihood and his contributions to our area. Thank you.
