We’ve always believed 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 and families are in dire need. We are always looking for new local groups with events that we can participate in with an in-kind donation. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the flyer or request letter for your event. We will do all we can to help.
Mac’s photography packages are donated to schools and organizations in the surrounding community in all areas but especially ones that focus on education, health and families. Family Promise of Hudson County, Stevens Co-Operative, The Hudson School, Hoboken Public Education Foundation, Mommies Heart2Heart, Chilltown United and CASA Hudson County as well as the Hoboken Family Alliance and JC Families are just a few of the organizations that we were able to support this past year. Winning bidders receive up to $2,000 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 over 80! In 2017, we were pleased to donate photography services and artwork valued at over $90,000.
“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.”
