In 2010, I passed the helm of the Sacramento Help Portrait group off to Jerome Love. He had a very successful event and I had hoped the same would come together this year, but it hasn't. I tried to organize a venue myself this year, but started too late and the agencies I've contacted are now overwhelmed with their own holiday plans for their clients. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I don't think we're going to have a December event this year. I will resume my regular roll next year to make sure our outstanding group of volunteers are not disappointed again.
I have encouraged our group to organize their own little events in their own neighborhoods and communities. Churches are a great resource for info on families in need in their congregation. Even if you only serve 1-2 families this year, the experience will go a long way toward making those families' holiday season brighter.
