CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -  More than 700 individuals representing 205 families will receive high-quality professional photos free of charge on Saturday, December 6. The Greater Cedar Rapids Area Help-Portrait team will use their time, equipment, and expertise to give back to people less fortunate during the holiday season.
Nearly 150 volunteer studio photographers, photo assistants, photo editors, make-up artists and agency representatives will bring the worldwide Help-Portrait movement to four separate locations within the Cedar Rapids area.
Partner agencies include Horizons, Kids on Course, Young Parents Network, Southeast Linn Community Center and Tanager Place. Families or individuals who cannot afford the service normally are registered through partner agencies. Their photo is captured, edited and prepared on the spot, and participants leave with a copy of the photo to keep.
