In response to the news of the stolen FotoFest cameras, we have received tremendous support from both individuals and local businesses in the community. We have now replaced the stolen cameras, and have raised enough money to also provide a set for Project Row Houses to keep permanently to use for future Literacy Through Photography projects.
LTP cohort teacher Ben Tecumseh DeSoto is busy working with the PRH students to finalize their work for their August 13th opening, Framework for the Future.
Thank you to KTRK-ABC 13, Glasstire.com, Houston Press Hair Balls, and other local media that helped to spread the word about our story. We are truly grateful for your help in securing donations for our continued programming.
Money Raised from Individual Donors: $1,982.00
Matching Donation from H-E-B: $2,000.00
Donation from Houston Camera Exchange:
36 Nikon cameras, memory cards and camera cases
The cameras are now back in the hands of the LTP students at Project Row Houses and will be used in LTP programming for years to come.
FotoFest's Literacy Through Photography program can always use your support. If you are interested in donating to help low-income communities bring the LTP program to their schools and neighborhood centers, please click below:
