Help Portrait is a global event held the first Saturday in December that allows photographers, hairstylists, and makeup artists to donate their time to give back to those in need within the community. Students, faculty, and alumni participated in Help Portrait 2019 in Downtown Toledo, at the Owens Downtown Learning Center. Families came to the learning center to have their professional portraits taken. Five classrooms were filled with lights and laughter with a special visit from Santa Claus. Each room had a runner, photographer, assistant, editor, and printer. Each family received a high quality print and a USB with their images.
