For Laurence Central High School senior Melissa MacNeur, Tuesdays aren’t just another day of the week. With a little time and some disposable cameras, they become an opportunity for homeless children to do something they don’t often get a chance to do: be a kid.
MacNeur wrote the grant “My, Oh, My All About Eye” through United Way Youth as Resources. Stemming from her mutual love for art and helping children, the grant provides each child with a disposable camera. MacNeur and other club volunteers then take the children to a park on their Tuesday visits to take pictures. The children range from ages three to 10 years old.
