"We are extremely proud to support Matt's efforts in rebuilding our community," said Wild owner Craig Leipold. "His passion and commitment to providing a voice and resources to people in need is remarkable and we are grateful for the positive impact he makes in the State of Hockey and beyond."
"As brilliant as he is on the ice, Matt's devotion to the game and his community off the ice are truly outstanding," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said. "The NHL is honored to join the Minnesota Wild in supporting Matt's initiative to Rebuild Lake Street and we admire his dedication to the great fans of the Wild and to everyone who lives and works in the Twin Cities."
As part of the fundraiser, Dumba will match all donations up to $100,000. All donations to this initiative will benefit the Lake Street Council and ActionDignity.

The first 1,000 donors will receive a custom George Floyd tribute t-shirt, and all donors will be entered for a chance to receive a pair of custom Air Jordan's - designed by Kyle Dumba to support the cause. Matt will also choose one lucky donor at random from the United States and one from Canada to spend an afternoon with him - get out on the ice - and have dinner at his favorite restaurant in Minneapolis or Calgary.
