In another act of community involvement, Dobrusin Law Firm shareholder Rebecca Wilson has been a member of the Kiwanis Club of Macomb since it was chartered. Although the pandemic halted their philanthropic activities in 2020, Becky and her Kiwanis Club colleagues resumed their fundraising efforts earlier this year, continuing their mission to support local children’s charities and give back to the community.
Recently, the Club presented a $500 check to the Parents and Friends of Glen H. Peters School. Founded 23 years ago, the Parents and Friends group acts as a parent-teacher organization for the special needs school in Macomb Township. Over the past two decades, they have raised money for playground equipment, a splash pad, and other features.
The Kiwanis Club of Macomb also presented $500 checks to Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids, a grassroots non-profit that provides wigs and support services at no charge to children and young adults experiencing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns, and other disorders; and North Star Reach, Michigan’s only barrier-free, fully-accessible medical camp serving children with significant health challenges and their families at no charge.
