Catching up on some blogging. Last week I posted about friends of mine whom I did a shoot swap with. This week I am going back in the archives to December. Matt is also the Executive Director of a great organization named Star of Hope Ministries. I had a great time photographing their open house where they display to supporters and friends of the organization all of the important initiatives they take to help relieve poverty and hunger in northern New Jersey and to thank some of their most cherished partners and volunteers.
I am sharing this post not only to show some of the work that I did for them but to highlight them as an organization that I love and to say that they always need help through volunteering and donations. They are very good stewards of gifts given them and they work through career preparation, wonderful seasonal programs like backpacks of school supplies for students that can't afford them, Thanksgiving in a box called their "Box of Love" program, and coat drives and so much more. Check them out on their website to learn more about what they do and to get involved!!!
