Volunteer opportunity description

The Actors Theatre Workshop, a nonprofit theater and community center that serves homeless children, needs experienced photographer and video volunteers to shoot our annual Holiday Celebration for Homeless Children on Wednesday, 12/15 from 2:00-8:00pm.


Being displaced by homelessness does not always allow a child the opportunity to have a traditional family gathering complete with nutritious food and gifts. This year the Actors Theatre Workshop will host a holiday celebration and creative class for children from HELP USA temporary housing facility. We need your support in our efforts to renew the profound expression of love, compassion, celebration and giving this holiday season. Our annual Holiday Celebration is an opportunity for the children to reconnect themselves with the dream and essence of the Holiday Season.
