Local children celebrate their birthdays by giving back to others in need

Maverick and Griffin Broviak have celebrated several of their past birthdays with a party to benefit the Humane Society Calumet Area animals. The boys, who are now 12, had their first party of this kind when they were just 7. This photo is from their eighth birthday in 2009. Stephanie Peterson, Humane Society Calumet Area development director, said the boys are dedicated to giving and set new goals every year. “Their whole family is a very giving, warm kind of family,” she said. “They’re the sweetest, best kids you’ll ever meet. Every year they want to get more. It’s become a mission for them,” she said.
