New organization plans to offer “Love Lines” for the children of the region

The new nonprofit hopes to get Hunt County kids involved in fishing while raising funds to help families cope with a potentially deadly disease.

The first official meeting of Dusty’s Lines of Love is scheduled for Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Landon Winery in downtown Greenville.

Jamie Alkire creates a foundation in honor of his late son, Dusty Lane Brock, who was 16 years old when he passed away from acute lymphocytic leukemia nearly eight years ago.

“The new foundation has just received non-profit status,” she said. “I will work closely with government officials to provide fishing gear for children and adolescents affected by illness. Our goal is to involve the community as much as possible. We are actively looking for volunteers and fishermen to donate time to these children for upcoming events.”

Alkire, Dusty and their family grew up in Hunt County, much of which was water.

“I have strong roots there,” she said. “In the future, we plan to hold several events in Graham Park, possibly Wind Point Park, Lakes Tawakoni and Lake Fork. We will also start a toy promotion in March that will run through July and benefit Dallas Children’s Medical Center. We will also provide service packages for families who have to deal with this debilitating disease.”

Alkire said the plan is to help organize fishing trips and other activities for those affected by the disease.

“We are actively looking for sponsors to help, as this will be an opportunity to write off all taxes for these children to take their minds off the illness and give their families a chance to become normal, if only for a short time,” she said.
