Caring for the Clearwater & Tampa Bay Community

Personal Injury Attorney Matthew Noyes Cares About The Community

Helping out those in need is in Attorney Matthew Noyes’ blood.  Not just in the courtroom or in his personal injury law firm, Matthew Noyes gives back to his community in a variety of ways.

Noyes Family FoundationNoyes Family Foundation

Attorney Matthew Noyes is the founder and president of his family’s charitable foundation – The Noyes Family Foundation.  

After the passing of both parents, the Noyes 11 children wanted to put what their parents taught to good use.  Family was always important in the Noyes homes.  Giving back to others was a life lesson.

As a result, in honor of their matriarch’s November birthday, the Noyes children began Operation Stone Soup in 2003 — an event that promotes both family and giving.  Each Thanksgiving, the Noyes family would buy all the ingredients for a big family Thanksgiving dinner, including a turkey, and give a care basket to less fortunate families.  The number of families that received these care baskets depended on how old Mary Noyes would have been on her November birthday.  Since she passed away when she was 75 years old, seventy-five families received the Noyes family care basket.  In 2018, Mary Noyes would have turned 90 years old so this Thanksgiving, the Noyes Family Foundation will be helping 90 families have a blessed Thanksgiving dinner.

In addition to annual Thanksgiving dinners, the Noyes family has carried on the “giving back” philosophy by promoting education and providing scholarships in memory of their mom. Mary Noyes taught music at St. Cecelia Interparochial Catholic School in Clearwater, Florida for 26 years.  There she taught some of her children and grandchildren.  Stan Noyes was an avid musician and could play just about any instrument.  The Noyes Family Foundation hopes to carry on giving back through music and education scholarships.
