The Youth Hope Foundation and The Salvation Army received checks from 'The Face of Redlands', photographer Marc Piron and Deborah O'Hara owner of Redlands PR parent company of AboutRedlands.com. Deborah and Marc developed the concept of the campaign with the help of the Redlands Police Department to address the issues of homelessness in Redlands.
"The Homeless Awareness Campaign" launched on March 16th 2011, although not a fundraiser, did generate some cash, $1400 went to Youth Hope, Heidi Mayer and $3750 went to the The Salvation Army, Captain Patrick Lyons.
Youth Hope used the funds for a variety of things that will help kids from 14 to 24 years old who need help, bus tickets, food, clothing, lodging, school, medical attention etc.
The Salvation Army used the funds to send 10 under privileged/displaced children to a Summer Camp in Ramona, San Diego County, Ca.

What is the FACE of Redlands?
This is a philanthropic project, designed to address the issue of local homelessness. Currently, there are over 150 homeless men, women, and families - with children - in our town. Funds raised by this project were donated to the local Salvation Army and the Youth Hope Foundation to directly help these members of our community. This philanthropic project also supported needed efforts to educate the people of Redlands on how best to help address local homelessness.

I was glad I to be part of this Face of Redlands art and education display. Marc did an amazing job with the photography and together we brought to light issues of homelessness in the city.

Hi Marc, It was a great show and I love my book. Thank you for your generosity in doing this work to benefit the homeless in Redlands and the charities that support them.

The photos look great in the windows on State Street! The show was a lot of fun. I enjoyed seeing the homeless people react to their portraits and being a part of the event. It definitely brought different people of our community together.
