ROTTERDAM — A local church will provide needy families with free holiday portraits on Saturday.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Messiah Lutheran Church, 2850 Guilderland Ave. will host a local edition of Help-Portrait, an international movement begun in 2009 that has since provided over 400,000 portraits in 67 countries.
This is the second year for Help-Portrait Schenectady. Organizers are hoping to provide 150 households with quality portraits along with other community building activities like snacks with Santa, cookie decorating, arts and crafts, Christmas story reading and more.
Financial support is being provided by Thrivent Financial.
