Keith Crawford along with several other tenants were impacted by a fire at the Parkmerced apartments on Friday, September 22, 2017. Keith has since been rehoused within Parkmerced, but lost everything due to the water damage. He is in need of clothes, furniture, and basic household items.
On Tuesday of this week, the Board of Supervisors honored Keith as a founder of Give Life, Save Life, a nonprofit that raises awareness in African American communities about the importance of organ donations.
Keith and Lenore Crawford established Give Life, Save Life after losing their eldest daughter, Brittany Crawford, in a car crash in 2012. They made the difficult, but lifesaving decision to donate Brittany's organs so that others can live. Brittany saved 4 lives through organ donations. Since then, Give Life, Save Life has raised funds for research and advocacy for African American organ donor awareness.
They also have an annual Brittany Crawford Scholarship that supports young women of color.
Keith has given so much to the community and now it's time for us to give back to him during this time of need.
