The Kennett Area Democrats is launching a Help-Portrait event on Saturday, May 4th, at The Garage from 10am – 3pm.

About Help-Portrait: Help-Portrait, a non-profit organization, was founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart in 2008. The mission is to empower photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists to use their skills, tools and expertise to give back to their local community.

The Help- Portrait volunteers will be taking portraits of people in need. These portraits are not for a portfolio, website, or sale but rather about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a memory.

Through a generous donation from the Kennett Area Democrats, the donated use of The Garage to host the event, a team of volunteers, including professional photographers, hairdressers, make-up artists, and many local volunteers to coordinate, take and distribute photos, this program is totally free to all participants.
