Westchester here too. I can help both ways.
Hi, just joined. Is there an event in Westchester or will you join one in NY?
I'm in White Plains and am trying to figure out if there is a local one.
I'm a freelance photographer from Tarrytown, NY. I'm looking for a group to join that will allow me to donate my services for this awesome cause. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help out.
Since Westchester isn't too far from the Bronx...maybe I can recruit the volunteers for a BX event.
I haven't started anything, yet... I would let you know once I've identified a location.
Here is the HP event I've organized at a Women & Children's Shelter in the Bronx in 2009.
Hopefully, I'll be able to recruit all the lovely volunteers and more this year. Sorry, to have been absent last year...
Sirin - glad you're all set to do the Bronx location again -
Everyone: I've reset the NYC Signup Spreadsheet for 2011 if people want to add info there.
thanks! got a contact from that sheet just now. :)
Sirin: I am a High School photography teacher with equipment and student volunteers - please let me know if you are arranging the Bronx Shelter shoot - I can provide help if I get enough notice.
thank you so much for offering your help!
I think we're all set for photographers but we need another volunteer or two to assist with operations of the day. I can send you the Google sheet I've prepared for our location specifically, if you're interested.
I don't have a count, yet, on how many families we'll be photographing.
You should also check in with Will Solomon. His location is further away (Brooklyn) but it's huge and he may still need help, as well.
Let me know about volunteers/runners/wranglers/etc.
Thank you again!
All the best,
I will meet with my principal and the students today - the students would be willing to be gophers and runners - within a controlled space however - you're telling me you only need one or two students? I'd have to be there with them. I filled out one spreadsheet already but you can send me another one.
thanks for the quick response - Marty
You don't have to fill anything out...I would add any updates.
Please email me at sirinsamman@gmail.... once you have things fixated.
All the best,
I am a high school teacher and photographer in Westchester with Photo Club volunteers - I only found out about this project today - but I can make it and some of my students could find transportation to the Bronx location - but would much rather go to a location here in Westchester if possible - I don't see any ideas along those lines, however. Where would we find out the times etc - since I'm dealing with students i'd have to have all that nailed down.
