“Dorene Wilson Community Enrichment Fund” is designed to encourage growth, opportunity and build self-confidence for youth. Dorene was a member of the Tweed community for nearly 30 years and was an avid supporter of youth and strived to ensure everyone she came in contact with, no matter what walk of life felt accepted, encouraged and loved. Dorene wanted her children and others to believe in themselves and have the confidence and support to be successful in anything they put their mind to. Dorene’s cornerstones included kindness, compassion, support, respect, dedication, commitment, integrity, and patience. Dorene believed that youth needed outlets, structured activities, and to feel included in something bigger then themselves.
Dorene wanted to see donations made on her behalf go directly to community youth organizations. The Dorene Wilson Community Enrichment Fund is striving to ensure this happens.
Funds will be offered to individual youth, teams and organizations involved in extracurricular activities in the “Tweed Community” to help support growth, opportunity and self-confidence.

Funds will be presented by the WMPC team to selected youth and/or youth-activity organizations in the community.
