Help-Portrait Macomb 2019
November 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Help-Portrait Macomb, the family portrait event for low-income families, is back for its 6th year! The event will be at a new location this year, Free Range Yoga & Community Center (the former Ford Hopkins building) on the Macomb Square. We will be holding the event a couple of weeks earlier this year, so check your calendars and join us!
Help-Portrait is an international event that gives the gift of a family portrait to low-income families and those in need – people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford professional family portraits. This event lets us capture a moment, a memory, and a whole lot more. This is something the family will always have – not just a photo, but the feeling that people care.
We will photograph as many families as we can fit into two hours. Each family receives a free 8×10 print and an electronic copy of the family photo. Contact HelpPortraitMacomb@gmail.com or our Facebook page to schedule a time. Walk-ins are also welcome.
We operate entirely on donations. If you would like to give a monetary gift, donations can be made to the Help-Portrait Macomb account at the Western Illinois Credit Union. Those interested in volunteering can contact Help-Portrait for additional information. Our most pressing volunteer need is for photo editors who are trained in Photoshop or Lightroom.
