North Carolina Church Offers Free Family Christmas Portraits to the Needy

Give residents of local homeless shelters, drug rehabilitation centers and children’s homes for abused and neglected kids a boost of self-esteem and other help through a special event this Christmas season.

Reeds Baptist Church in Lexington, N.C., partnered with Help-Portrait, a global movement of photographers using their skills to help those in need.

At a special event spearheaded by Spencer Reudelhuber, a photographer and a student leader at the church, the less fortunate received free photographs, a free meal, some Christmas gifts and a Bible. For some, it was the first time in years that they’d had a photograph taken, and seeing the photos helped their self-esteem, Pastor Dan Williams says.

“It was truly amazing that a simple thing such as a picture could make Christmas a time of encouragement and sharing Christ’s love,” Williams says.
