Council Member Abraham thanks community for gestures of support in wake of house fire

DEARBORN, Mich. – Dearborn City Council Member Robert A. Abraham and his family – whose home suffered significant damage due a fire which broke out on the evening of Saturday, Sept. 26 – wish to extend their heartfelt thanks to those across the City who have made calls and other gestures of support.

The family’s dog, Dublin, perished in the fire. No one else was hurt.

Many people have offered gifts of financial assistance to the Abraham family. While those offers are sincerely appreciated, the Abraham family invites anyone interested in making such a gesture to instead give a donation to the Dearborn Animal Shelter in Dublin’s memory.

Those interested in making a donation to the Dearborn Animal Shelter can do so online at, by phone at 313.943.2697 or by mail to Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter, 2661 Greenfield, Dearborn, MI, 48120.
