Operation Photo picks up steam

“Operation Photo,” co-founded by Mitch Goldstone, president of 30 Minute Photos Etc., Irvine, Calif., USA, and by Jennifer Petersen of Ladera Ranch, Calif., USA, is picking up steam, according to an article by Sgt. 1st Class Doug Sample of American Forces Press Service.

By the end of February, Petersen, who used to work at Goldstone’s company, hopes to collect at least 10,000 digital cameras to give to families of deployed service members so they can share photos with loved ones serving abroad. Goldstone said the cameras will be distributed to families through the military support organization Operation Homefront, a San Diego-based nonprofit group that aids families of deployed soldiers and reservists. Goldstone added that Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N.Y., USA, has also made a donation of digital cameras to the cause. Goldstone has contacted other camera manufacturers as well, and expects to hear back from some in the near future regarding possible participation in the program.
