I have worked for CRC INC. for nearly 20-years and I'm very impressed in the manner in which the Executive Director, Mrs. Wilhelmina P. Johnson, has nearly single-handedly re-invigorated the African-American Community with a sense of pride in the City of Darlington, the Pee Dee Area, and S.C. by bridging the gap between School and Home by establishing Historical, Cultural, Educational, and Employment Programs and Services for her community. She managed a Multi-Million Dollar budget and employed nearly 3,000 personnel with paid status with the USDA Summer Food Program for over 17-years, Sponsor for the first After-school Program for Children in the City and has continued so for 35-years, Sponsor for the Annual Darlington County MLK, Jr. Memorial Celebration for 24-years, State Sponsor for the S.C. Hal Jackson's Talented Teen Pageant for 30-years producing a Miss America - Kimberly Aiken, Engineered the erection of Historical Markers for prominent personalities and landmarks of African-American Citizenry within the county, Established the County's "Keep the Dream - Save the Children" Action Plan to save our youth, and instrumental in re-telling the historical truth of SC's Lead Role in the 20th Century Civil Rights Movement with the Theatrical Production - Land beyond the river, of Rev. J.A. De Laine, Sr.'s fight to dismantle segregation under Briggs v. Elliot in public schools.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The nonprofit has a heart for people.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
If this non-profit had $10,000,000.00, it would continue to make a significant impact in the lives of the poor and destitute in our area.
