I am so excited for all of our Omaha Help Portrait events for Dec 4th this year! Last year was an amazing experience. If you were a part of Help Portrait last year, I hope that you are excited for this year and that you’re sharing that excitement with everyone you know! I know we can make this an even more incredible experience the second time around.
I am stoked to share the events that we have confirmed for 2010!!! These organizations serve people all year round, and they are excited to have us join with them in blessing people this holiday season.
HP Events for 2010:
*We will be giving pictures to families of pediatric patients at UNMC and through the Hand in Hand program from Children’s Hospital, who will be shooting at the Ambassador Center.
*We will be returning to the InCommon Community Development Center’s Community Meal.
*One of our new venues this year will be the Open Door Mission, where we will be working with families at the Lydia House.
*A couple of other venues will be announced as soon as they are confirmed! 😉
We expect to serve around 250-300 families! To do so, we need YOU! We still need photographers, assistants, volunteers, stylists, and donations for prints and other things needed to serve people in the way that we hope to. Also, if you are interested in being a *Team Leader* at a venue, let us know!
We will also be taking donations for new/unused frames again this year. We have a few places confirmed as drop off spots for frames so far, plus a few more announcements coming soon about that!
