4-Seasons Athletics made the decision to do something to help the Matson family after Arik was shot in the head on January 6. The downtown Waseca sports apparel store has sold over 15,000 t-shirts in part raising more than $15,000 for the Matson family. 

The t-shirt is a black shirt with a white American flag on the front with a blue line running through one of the stripes of the flag. Inside the blue stripe is "Matson #222". The numbers represent Arik Matson's badge number with the Waseca Police Department.

On the back of the shirt is a quote from scripture, Proverbs 28:1, "The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion".

According to KMSP-TV in the Twin Cities, the scripture quote was "selected by Officer Matson’s wife." The owners of the store will continue to give proceeds from the t-shirts to the Matson family for as long as people continue to buy the shirts.
