Over the past five years, St. Clair County native Ewan Drum has accomplished a lot at a very young age. From feeding the homeless in Detroit to gathering supplies and aiding those in need, the young boy has made quite an impact.
It all began at the age of seven when Ewan told his mom he wanted to wear a superhero costume while assisting the homeless. That’s how “Super Ewan” came about. In July 2014, the family founded a non-profit organization to assist homeless. Through the years, his documented community involvement earned him a trip to meet then President Barrack Obama and countless “super-friends” as they were dubbed. Unfortunately after an incredible journey, Super Ewan Inc. has announced that they will no longer be taking donations after the end of the year as it’s time for a new chapter in Ewan’s life.
The organization is thanking the community for its continued support over the years and providing one last opportunity to take part in a signature Super Ewan event. With Thanksgiving around the corner, Super Ewan is collecting turkey dinners for a final year. The organization has committed to helping 50 families in St. Clair and Macomb counties with a turkey and all the sides for Thanksgiving dinner. If you’d like to help Super Ewan with his final turkey dinner donations, search for his page on Facebook.
What’s next for Ewan you might ask? Someday he wants to be a chef, so he’s spending time in the kitchen preparing for what might be next.
