Remember this image?
We are working hard to get photos and mementos back to their owners.
We are working for the residents of Garland and Rowlett!
Representatives with National Disaster Photo Rescue will travel to the Garland/Rowlett areas April 25-27 to assist a team of dedicated volunteers as they clean, scan, document and upload an estimated 1000 misplaced photos scattered by the December 26 tornado, in order to put memories back in the hands of families who have lost so much.
Once photos are cleaned, they will be scanned by some of the latest equipment provided by Kodak Alaris and E-Z Photo Scan. After scanning, photos will be available for identification via the Lost Photos of Garland and Rowlett TX Tornado Facebook page. Viewers can “tag” people they recognize and can fill out a claim form located as a direct link on each album. Photos should be available for viewing as early as Thursday, April 28.
National Disaster Photo Rescue Teams are grateful for the generosity of New Liberty Baptist Church, Garland, TX for providing a safe place to process all of the Lost Photos.
Residents may contact local Director, Cita Sue Cox at 214-356-3878 to turn in photos or more information about the Lost Photos Project.
“I am anxious and ready to finally get the Lost Photos uploaded and on-line so they can be claimed
