Thank you for considering volunteering with Family Promise of Spokane’s Smile for a Smile Family Photo Fundraiser. We hope to answer all your questions below, but feel free to email Kamryn at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions.
We care about the 3,000 homeless children in Spokane. For 20 years, Family Promise of Spokane has been helping homeless families, one family at a time. We depend on a caring community to partner with us to help families move towards home again. With an emergency family crisis shelter and community-based transitional shelter, we have helped 150 homeless families and prevented an additional 118 children from becoming homeless through our rental assistance program.
This event gives photographers a very unique opportunity to serve the homeless community in Spokane. By volunteering, you are not only raising money for Family Promise, but you will also bless a former or current homeless family, as each photographer will be paired with a former or current guest of Family Promise. This event isn’t just about money for Family Promise of Spokane. It will be incredible to be able to provide our families with quality family pictures.
When and Where
Saturday, September 23 - 9-3pm and Sunday, September 24 - 11:00-5:00 pm at Finch Arboretum in Spokane, Washington.
Each family will choose one of two packages. Below is the minimum
Blue - $75 - A 20-minute sitting and a link to Dropbox to access to up to 5 edited photos

How to volunteer
By signing up, you are committing to donate 2-4 hours on September 23 and/or 24 (depending on your availability) to take photos of families in the natural light of a beautiful fall afternoon.
