“We could not have done it without them! Let’s all thank them for partnering with us!” – Help-Portrait Chicago

Moody Church hosted its annual Help-Portrait event in downtown Chicago, partnering with Tricoci University and Angel Tree to provide an afternoon of portraits for families in the Chicagoland area.

We got an awesome opportunity to participate in an event with Help-Portrait, an organization that provides free portrait services to families in need. This year, they’re working with families from Angel Tree which is an organization that provides gifts for children with incarcerated parents. We performed quick touch ups for hair and make-up before the portraits on Saturday, December 8th. 50-75 families to participated in this event and 20 Cosmetology students and 10 Esthetics students attended.
