Local Photographer Donates to Genesis Behavioral Health

PLYMOUTH — Genesis Behavioral Health's Plymouth Children & Family Program was the recent recipient of a donation to provide winter clothing for children in need. Local photographer Jon Secord of J Secord Photography donated 25% of his print sales throughout the month of December to the program.

"It's a great feeling to have an idea and see it grow into reality," said Secord, "I was able to sell enough prints so the team at Genesis Behavioral Health can purchase winter clothing for local families who may have otherwise gone without this winter. The final total of $225 was way beyond what I had initially hoped to raise, and I am so grateful to everybody who helped this cause and purchased my artwork."

"Every year, the needs of the children and families we serve seem to exceed the resources we have available," said Kristen Welch, Director of Development & Communications at Genesis Behavioral Health, "Mr. Secord's generosity will make a difference for many of the children and families in our Plymouth program. We are once again humbled by the support of our community, and are so grateful for their efforts on our behalf."
