Hartshorn For The Community

Hoboken Photographer Helping Hands

Mac and Jennifer Hartshorn believe that sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity is a great way to give back to those who have sup­ported Hartshorn Portraiture. Volunteer groups, as well as non-​profits do so much to help our com­mu­ni­ties, but they can’t do it alone. Schools are suf­fer­ing in every state and chil­dren are in need.

Mac’s pho­tog­ra­phy pack­ages are donated to schools and orga­ni­za­tions in the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity that focus on edu­ca­tion, health and well­be­ing. The IDEAL School, Stevens Co-​Operative, CASA and Summit Speech School are a few of the schools that the Hartshorn’s were able to sup­port this past year. Foundations such as HFA, The Help for Children Foundation, MDA and Hoboken’s Homeless Shelter, received pack­ages to auc­tion at their fundrais­ing events. Winning bid­ders receive up to $2000 each of Mac’s pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices and artwork.

The Hoboken Family Alliance was one of the first foun­da­tions that Mac and Jennifer sup­ported back in 2005, this year, their num­ber of recip­i­ents rose to nearly 50! In 2010, the cou­ple donated their pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices and art­work to the value of $90,000 in a very dif­fi­cult year for fundraisers.

For me, giv­ing back is a vital part of a full and reward­ing life. What could be more ful­fill­ing than doing what you love to do (Photography) while con­tribut­ing to the qual­ity of life of oth­ers in need within your own com­mu­nity?” says Mac. ”Hoboken and its sur­round­ing area have been great to us. We love liv­ing and work­ing in this vibrant community.”
