Crisp looks to help children in need
DC has seen his share of children growing up in broken homes.

Donald "D.C." Crisp has seen his share of children growing up in broken homes.
A longtime ball coach, D.C. just finished coaching a Jaycee basketball team that ended its season last week. Crisp said many of the boys on that team, ages 10-11, were facing challenges at home.
“About half the kids on my team had parents who were going through a divorce,” said Crisp. “I know that was tough on them. Outside of that, there are a lot of kids who don’t have a dad who is part of their lives. I was thinking about those things, and the kids who need a positive role model, and I want to do something to help.”
D.C. says he is working to create a local Big Brother program and he’s looking for volunteers who would like to make a difference in the life of a child. He says it might be something as small as volunteering a couple hours a week.
“I know everybody is busy and it’s hard to find the time,” said D.C. “This would be something where you could take them to a movie, or take them fishing, maybe go outside and throw a ball with them. There’s a chance you could make a big impact.”
Crisp says he has identified a few children who could benefit from this type of program. “I’m going to start with one child and go from there,” said Crisp.
If you would like to volunteer, call Crisp at 409-5158.
