PRLog - Nov. 19, 2012 - RENO, Nev. -- Washoe County NV - Help-Portrait is a global nonprofit organization which mobilizes photographers in various communities to capture the images of those in need. Dozens of Washoe County volunteers will work together on December 8th from 9:00am until 5:00pm at Reno High School in order to capture family portraits for homeless and low-income families.
"We are a group of photographers, cosmeticians, small business owners and other community members who simply want to give the gift of family memories," stated, organizer and local photographer, Jeramie Lu," This is a movement across 56 countries aiming solely to give back to communities and families. There will be food, coffee and other generously donated food we receive from local businesses to create a welcome atmosphere for the families we are helping."
The Reno Help-Portrait project is open to families, individuals and children who would otherwise be unable to afford photographs taken by professional photographers. This is event is not for those looking for portfolio, website and other for sale items.
Jeramie Lu is still looking for volunteers and local businesses to provide time, services and financial donations in order to create a memorable event that truly creates an impact for our less fortunate families who call the Truckee Meadows their home.
The, Reno Help-Portrait, event will host over 20 local photographers in our area as well as nearly a dozen hair and makeup artists, food and beverage volunteers and more.
