Needy families in Loudoun County, Virginia, who benefit from INMED’s support programs, including home visiting, parent educational classes and homelessness prevention programs, enjoyed the unexpected benefit of receiving professional family portraits on Saturday, December 7. INMED partnered with Help-Portrait and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Sterling, to give these parents the opportunity to get professional photos of their families just in time for the holidays. In addition to the
professional photographers who donated their time and talent, volunteers served as make-up artists and hairdressers to ensure that everyone looked their best for the special photographs. Each family received a free 5 x7 printed portrait. Forty-three families participated in the event
Also on Saturday, 27 Key Club students from Briar Woods High School in Ashburn, Virginia, transformed into high-fashion models for a Macy’s fashion show that raised money for INMED Partnerships for
Children’s Loudoun County programs. The students took to the runaway to model holiday party dresses and school/work outfits for holiday shoppers at the Dulles Town Centre Mall. Before and after the show, shoppers had the chance to donate $5 to INMED in exchange for a Macy’s coupon.
Thanks to all the volunteers and organizations who gave their time and effort to help make the holidays brighter for the less fortunate members of their community.
