Founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.
In December, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.
The Community Health Center will be hosting its inaugural version of this international event on Saturday, December 8th from 10am until 4pm. The event will take place in the Community Room at CHC’s new building at 675 Main Street in Middletown.
Help-Portrait is entirely volunteer-driven, and several HealthCorps Navigators and staff members at CHC will be on hand to ensure that it goes smoothly and that as many photographs are taken, printed, and given away as possible.
This event is about the art of giving, and we at CHC look forward to providing quality photographs to disadvantaged members of the Middletown community as the holiday season approaches.
