USF students collecting cameras for “Recycle. Reshoot. Remember.”

Jan. 9, 2013 FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Members of the University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts Public Relations Society and Photography Club, also known as F8, are collecting donations of gently-used digital cameras for Vincent House, which provides transitional housing for the homeless in Fort Wayne. The fundraiser will run from Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 21 through April 22.

Collection boxes will be located at the University of Saint Francis Rolland Art Gallery on Leesburg Road, Indiana-Purdue at Fort Wayne on Coliseum Blvd., Sunny Schick camera store at 407 W. Jefferson Blvd., Wunderkammer Company at 3402 Fairfield Ave. and Carroll High School on Carroll Road.

F8 has been providing Vincent House residents with free family portraits during the holiday seasons, and F8 members wish to expand their mission by giving Vincent House families a chance to capture their own moments year-round.

Donating cameras, batteries, memory cards or gift cards will make that possible. The USF students urge local residents to give new life to their old cameras by donating them to families in need. For more information, contact the School of Creative Arts at (260) 399-7700, ext. 8001.
