Operation Photo Rescue Houston copy run

Preservation Houston and Operation Photo Rescue teamed up to help Houstonians whose family photos were damaged during Hurricane Harvey with a copy run Dec. 9 and 10.

Volunteers sorted, measured and photographed the damaged photos, which will be sent to OPR volunteers around the world for digital restoration. The result: People who thought their memories had been lost will get restored new prints of their treasured photos.

We loved being able to do this for the community — and we loved hearing the stories that went along with the photos. Thanks to everyone who joined us this weekend, to our fantastic volunteers, and to Operation Photo Rescue for providing such a wonderful service.
