Family portraits to help create memories

Professional and hobbyist photographers are teaming up Saturday, Dec. 3, to help brighten the holidays for people in the Abilene community.
As part of Abilene Christian University’s month-long Season of Caring initiative, more than 50 professionals, students and other local residents will be volunteering their time to help create free family portraits for residents of the Carver and Stevenson neighborhoods, families of ACU’s Treadaway Kids ministry, refugees participating in the International Rescue Committee program, and those affiliated with the Connecting Caring Communities (CCC) project.
Family portraits can be made Saturday at the Woodson Center for Excellence at 342 Cockerell Drive in Abilene, from 1-5 p.m.
ACU, the Carver Youth Council, CCC, and the Stevenson-Zancudo Neighborhood Association are sponsors of the event. Families can choose their images after their photo sitting.
Donations to Season of Caring are invited to help provide toys, clothing and other gifts for needy families in Abilene. Already, more than 700 toys have been donated by members of the ACU community to be distributed Dec. 12-14 to children through Love & Care Ministries’ Christmas on the Streets.
