Giving back to the community is an important part of what Alycat Photo & Video Services does. We are passionate about working with great organizations that are truly making a difference in the lives of those in our community and around the world. Alycat Photo & Video Services supports non-profits through photography, videography and multimedia projects. We also donate several photo sessions to different fundraising auctions each year.
Below are a few of the incredible organizations that we proudly support as well as Alycat charity drives. Please click on their names to visit their websites and check out the wonderful work they do.
Alycat’s “Scare Away Hunger” Food Drive
Every Halloween, the studio at Alycat Photo & Video Services opens its doors to goblins, superheroes and princesses. For the month of October, we invite the community to bring their children and pets in their best costumes to pose on our Halloween set in exchange for food/goods benefiting the Animal Protection Society of Durham or the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. At the end of the month, each participant’s name is entered into a drawing. The winner receives a free family photo session. The “Scare Away Hunger” Food Drive is an event we look forward to every year. We hope you will be able to join us next time!
Vs. Cancer was founded in 2012 under the idea that any athlete at any age can make a difference, specifically in the battle against kids’ cancer. Founded by cancer survivor Chase Jones, Vs. Cancer works with athletes and communities to fund both childhood cancer research nationally as well as local children’s hospitals and community-based efforts. Vs. Cancer focuses not only on investing of the child of tomorrow, but also in helping the child fighting cancer today.
The Animal Protection Society of Durham
The Animal Protection Society of Durham (APS) has been helping animals in our community since 1970, and has managed the Durham County Animal Shelter since 1990. In addition to county funding, APS relies on donations from caring individuals and corporations to feed, shelter and provide medical attention for the nearly 7,000 stray, surrendered and abused animals we care for each year. The mission of the APS of Durham is to educate the public about the humane care, treatment and well-being of all animals, to help stop pet overpopulation through the promotion of spay/neuter programs, and to find suitable adoptive homes for the animals in our care.
