"Hey guys, I'm looking to put a Help Portrait session together with the help of a friend of mine who is tied into a number of volunteer groups in the local area.

Sorry it has been so long since I got in touch with you about the Help Portrait on December 12th. (Some of you maybe didn't hear from me in the first place). Regardless, I wanted to get figuring out what we are going to be doing for this.
First, if you know other people that have been talking about this, please get them on this list so we can have their help.
My initial thought of where this should happen is at The 201, aka Portico Church. They are hosting Pacem during the time this will happen. We need to know if this is something they would want to do.
From here, if we have enough volunteers, they could go downtown to get people and also to Salvation Army, though it is my hope that we can let people know about this in the coming weeks, so it can be on their radar.
