I have known the Founder of this organization for 11 years. Met her professionally, when i was assigned by my editor to write a story on this new non-profit. Since that time Maggie and I have become like-minded, close friends. I'm now an Advisory Board member of Wigs 4 Kids, and have the deepest respect for what Maggie and her staff do to support our sweet "kids" in need. It's fulfilling to see the love at the Wellness Center for our "kids." For any negative remark or review there may be, there are easily 10 positive reviews to back that up. There's a sense of purpose in supporting this organization. I'm happy to be on this journey with Maggie, the kids, her staff, and our board.

As the former Mayor of St. Clair Shores, I have personally seen Maggie Varney build Wigs 4 Kids from the ground up. My wife, Nancy and I are very proud to be a part of this wonderful organization. The smiles on the faces of the kids and their parents is heartwarming for all to see. We are most proud that she has chosen to showcase the wellness center in St. Clair Shores. I really think they deserve 10 stars!
