Community Service

Welcome to the Orlando Camera Club Community Services information page.  The Orlando Camera Club believes in giving back to the community by donating its time and talents to non/not for profit organizations in need of photography services.

Please note that submitting a request is not a guarantee of provision of services, however, we will do our best to provide any help we can depending on the availability of volunteers as well as other prior/competing commitments. Requests should be submitted at least 30 days in advance of the event.
