Shoutout to KEH Camera
Our church has an arts center and it concentrates on providing art opportunities to disadvantaged youth in our area. One group is at risk boys from a nearby residence home. They expressed an interest in photography and I was asked to teach a 6 weeks course.
We had a small grant for equipment. We had as many as 12 boys for the class. I contacted KEH, discussed the project and told them our budget. They worked with me and we put together 12 Canon Rebels (European versions) with the 15-55 kit lens, battery and charger. Some were listed as BGN, but they mostly had minor cosmetic issues.
When they arrived, I tested every camera and lens and they all worked fine. We had our first class yesterday and the boys were overjoyed. I had them set the cameras on "P" mode and we spent over an hour outside taking photos.
Thanks again to KEH for helping us make this photo course a reality. There's not many bright spots in their lives and you made a positive contribution to 12 boys. I wish you could have seen the looks on their faces when we handed them their camera.
